Sparrow Moon Lander

A moon lander built by the Israeli organization SpaceIL, originally for the Google X-Prize, but they're still launching it even though the deadline is past. It will soft land, and then do a 500 meter rocket-powered hop to meet requirements of the X-Prize, and send pictures. Launch services for the mission are provided by Spaceflight Industries as part of the GTO-1 mission. Sparrow will be deployed into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) before performing a Trans Lunar Injection (TLI) using its own propulsion.
