Winetraub recently toured UC San Diego, USD, and SDSU as part of a speaking series put on by the MGSDII. Over 300 students and faculty learned how SpaceIL is making history as part of a global Moon race sponsored by Google to place an unmanned spacecraft on the Moon’s surface before the mission deadline of December 2017. Landing a spacecraft on the Moon will make Israel the fourth nation to do so, following the success of the three superpowers (US, Russia, and China).

Update, January 2017: SpaceIL was just selected as one of 5 finalists competing for the $20 million Google Lunar XPRIZE!
