The iCenter and educational partners have created a series of videos to share SpaceIL's many stories. In bringing us all along for the ride, our excitement grows, our knowledge becomes greater, and our relationships with Israel deepen.
The Journey to the Moon
SpaceIL created a series of animated videos which explains various parts of the mission:
Yariv Bash, a co-founder of SpaceIL (the team of scientists working to land an Israeli spacecraft on the moon), discovered a unique connection between him and his grandfather—a German engineer who survived the Holocaust. Watch the inspiring story below:
- What themes are evident in Yariv's story?
- Have you had a chance to sit down with your grandparents or other family members to hear their stories?
- What are some of the stories they tell?
- What types of "things" are passed from one generation to the next?
- In what ways may they impact our identities?
Watch another story from SpaceIL co-founder Kfir Damari:
Space and space exploration are the next frontier. The space industry has produced satellite TV, water filters, UV sunglasses, and many more inventions. SpaceIL’s success will be a source of pride for Israel while introducing the world to new and innovative ways to explore outer space. In addition, the space industry has the potential to become a major growth engine for the Israeli economy.
