The "Celebrate Israel" festival took place in Los Angeles on April 21th, in order to celebrate Israel's Independence Day at the local Jewish community. Especially for this event, we built a special prototype of the SpaceIL spacecraft, which can fit inside a suitcase in pieces, in order to make the trip there.
The final result: a spectacular exhibit at the festival!
Sandy Heffetz-Millard, a volunteer engineer in our engineering team, represented us at a NASA conference about space components in the "2013 SEE Symposium and MAPLD Combined" conference in San Diego. The participants learned about space radiation and how it affects space electronics. In addition, we presented the challenges in building a video system in accordance with the Google Lunar X-prize competition rules.
Avi Barlia, a volunteer in our Engineering team,was SpaceIL's representative at the annual Team Summit of "The Google Lunar X-Prize" competition: the modern race to the moon. During this conference in Chile, Avi represented our team's progress in the process. See you all again next year!
The workers and volunteers of SpaceIL have gathered together at SpaceIL Headquarters to celebrate the Passover holiday.
LE-CHA-IM, everybody ("Cheers" in Hebrew)! Happy holidays!
