SpaceIL said the new pledge means it has raised nearly $100 million that is expected to be needed for the mission to meet its 2024 launch target.
SpaceIL said the funding will come from South African-Israeli billionaire Morris Kahn, who made most of the early missions, French-Israeli billionaire Patrick Drahi, and South African philanthropist Martin Moshal, who co-founded venture capital firm Entree Capital.
