XPRIZE will honor the SpaceIL team with the $1 Million Moonshot Award for their achievements with the Beresheet craft.

While Israel’s Beresheet spacecraft did not land intact on the moon, its team will still collect a big check for its formidable accomplishments in space travel.

Following Beresheet’s crash landing, the XPRIZE Foundation announced that it is still going to award the SpaceIL team the $1 Million Moonshot Award.

According to SpaceIL President Morris Kahn, the team has already started to work on Beresheet 2.0 and another attempt at a moon landing will be mounted as soon as possible!
