In about seven weeks, SpaceX will launch a Beresheet which is SpaceIL’s small ~600 kg (1300 lb) lunar lander.
SpaceIL competed the Google Lunar XPrize. This launch is about a year too late for the Google prize.
SpaceX will launch an Indonesia’s PSN-6 communications satellite and the lunar lander will be a secondary payload.
The Indonesian satellite Nusantara Satu (PSN VI) has arrived at the Cape for its February launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 (SSL Release: https://t.co/usuBQeq9Uz).
