Israel plans to land unmanned spacecraft on moon in FebruaryBy Ari Rabinovitch YEHUD, Israel (Reuters) - An Israeli non-profit group plans to land an unmanned spacecraft on the moon in February in the first landing of its kind since 2013. The craft, which is shaped like a round table with four carbon fiber legs, is set to blast off in December from Florida's Cape Canaveral aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, said Ido Anteby, chief executive of the SpaceIL non-profit. "Our spacecraft will be the smallest ever to land on the moon," said Anteby.
