SpaceIL lander concept, Oct 2015 (SpaceIL) SpaceIL has abandoned plans to make a second lunar landing attempt. The organization, a former competitor in the Google Lunar X Prize, said days after its Beresheet spacecraft crashed while attempting to land on the moon in April that it would start work on a second such mission. But in a tweet Tuesday, SpaceIL said attempting another lunar landing "would not set the required threshold for a breakthrough mission" that it desired. The organization instead will pursue "a more significant challenge," but didn't specify what that would be.
