Israeli software entrepreneur Morris Kahn founded SpaceIL, an ambitious non-profit that aimed to be the first private entity to softly land a craft on the moon. While the Beresheet probe crashed close to landing, the mission was still seen as worthwhile. Kahn was a major supporter of the effort, covering some 40 percent of the $100 million mission. Immediately after the April 11 lunar-landing attempt, Kahn said, “We’re going to actually build a new ‘halalit,’ a new spacecraft. We’re going to put it on the moon, and we're going to complete the mission.” (Photo: Dafna.liza / CC BY-SA 4.0)
