At aTelAviv University labo- ratory, a team of 20 Israelis is building a spacecraft they believe will make Israel only the fourth country--after the United States, Russia and China--to touch down on the moon. The project, known as Spa- ceiL, looks like a long shot. The three-legged hexagonal craft appears too puny for interstellar travel, measur- ing just 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Of the initiative's three founders, only one holds an academic degree beyond a bachelor's. And SpaceIL is competing against 17 other teams to win the $20 million Google Lunar XPrize by being the first private spacecraft to land on the moon. The team hopes to land its craft by the end of next year. Across 1. Measurement for the gold in a mezuzah 6. Hebrew language alterna- tive 11. It tapes Mayim Bialik on "The Big Bang Theory" 14.

Partofthe citywhere many Jewish ghettos were Despite the odds, however, the founders exude the confi- dence of Nobel Prize-winning scientists, and that's not all that makes the project Israeli. From its origins to its endgame, SpaceIL is a quintessential story of Israel's upstart high-tech sector. Its founders cam. e together with little preparation and no money. They overcame a maze of Israeli bureaucracy to qualify for the contest, attracting funding through personal connections to preeminent scientists. And they say they will win the competition not by being the biggest or richest team, but by redefining how to send a spacecraft to the moon. "Only superpowers have managed to land on the moon," co-founderYariv Bash said. "What China did as a na- tion of 1.3 billion people, Spa- ceiL is doing as a nonprofit. It puts things in perspective." Launched by Google in 2007, the Lunar XPrize has straightforward rules: The first team to land an un- manned spacecraft on the moon, move it 500 meters-- about the length of 5 1/2 football fields--across the moon's surface and transmit high-definition photos and video back to Earth wins $20 million. The mission must be complete by the end of 2015. Thirty-three teams regis- tered for the competition and nearly all of the remaining 18 contenders plan to launch tank-like rovers to roll across the moon's surface, which Bash says is more expensive and will consume more fuel than the SpaceIL craft. Spa- ceiL expects to spend about $36 million on its mission. SpaceIL's craft is the size of a dishwasher and weighs just 300 pounds, two-thirds of which is fuel. Rather than drive across the moon, it will take off again after land- ing and jump 500 meters. XPrize on page 15A Down 1. See 3-Down 2. "I'm Jewish, not ___ Bud- dhist..." 3.
