For this week’s episode we are excited to bring you a conversation between our own CEO Anousheh Ansari and the Co-Founder and Deputy CEO of Space IL Kfir Damari.
Three engineers walk into a bar. On this day two years ago their team’s lander ‘Beresheet’ made its descent to the surface of the moon after a 48 day journey. What happened next didn’t exactly follow the playbook....
Established in 2011, Space IL competed in the Google Lunar XPRIZE and won the $1 Million Dollar ‘Moon Shot’ award for it’s successful entry into lunar orbit and for its attempt to land on the lunar surface – both of which were “firsts” for a privately-funded entity, marking a new era in space exploration.
To celebrate the second anniversary join Anousheh and Kfir as they discuss the prize, overcoming adversity and its surprise conclusion whilst diving deep into the future of this audacious space program and it’s real impact on the future of space travel.
