Israel-based SpaceIL, a non-profit, was the first team to secure a verified launch contract for its lander — a vehicle that's designed to land and then hop across the lunar surface. Investigation revealed that an inadvertent manual command was given to the spacecraft which started a chain reaction of events, shutting down the main engine and preventing it from being restarted, and ultimately causing the spacecraft’s demise. SpaceIL is SpaceIL is an Israeli nonprofit organisation that aimed to make history by landing the first Israeli spacecraft on the moon today with its craft, dubbed 'Beresheet,' or Genesis (artist.
