According to a report by Business Insider, nearly two months after its commercial launch, a private Israeli spacecraft has entered lunar orbit and will soon attempt a landing on the moon's surface. The Beresheet rover could achieve the first private moon landing in history, and would also make Israel just the fourth nation ever to have a spacecraft land on the moon. Business Insider reports that over the last six weeks, the thirteen-hundred-pound robot has gradually accelerated its way toward the moon. The lander was researched, designed and built by SpaceIL, a nonprofit group based out of Tel Aviv University on a mostly private budget of roughly 100 million-dollars.
