Integrating scientific experiments in the Beresheet 2 Mission 

As part of the Beresheet2 Mission, a number of important scientific experiments will be included.  A call for proposals for experiments was recently published (link to the Call for Proposals), and we continue to receive proposals.  The payloads that will be conducted as part of the Beresheet2 mission were chosen by a professional team.


SpaceIL is a non-profit organization that was established in 2011. It promotes education and scientific-technological research in Israel, through its groundbreaking projects in deep space.  The Beresheet 2 Program is slated as a technological challenge that will serve as inspiration on a national level that will reach today’s pupils, who may become the scientist and engineers of tomorrow. 

The Beresheet2 mission

Beresheet2 significantly raises the difficulty level.

The spacecraft will consist of a set of three spacecraft:

An orbiter that will orbit the moon for several years and will be used for scientific experiments and educational activities with youth in Israel and around the world.

Two landers will perform landings on both sides of the moon.

SpaceIL is an Israeli non-profit organization that sent Beresheet 1, the first Israeli spacecraft into space, and is currently working on the Beresheet 2 Mission. 


Beresheet2 is Israel’s second spacecraft developped by SpaceIL.   Beresheet2 is the sister of Beresheet 1 spacecraft, which was launched to the moon on February 22, 2019 and was captured by the moon on April 4. It reached its destination on April 11, 2019. 

Volunteers for the Engineering Team 

The amazing Beresheet 1 Project began as a dream of three daring entrepreneurs; however, it could not have been made possible without the generous support of many donors. 

Beresheet 1 was supported by hundreds of volunteers who donated their free time to help the founders on their journey to reach the moon and prove that thanks to resourcefulness, desire and faith, the sky is not the limit. 

Now, at the start of a new engineering project, we are recruiting additional volunteers to help us advance the Beresheet 2 Project. 

We invite you to submit your candidacy to volunteer in the project and take part in our journey to make the impossible a reality.
