Khan also announced that the team behind the new lander will begin work on April 14 to "complete the mission." However, no further details were given.
The first Beresheet lander crashed to the surface of the moon two days ago after a major engine failure. The accident occurred during his descent via Mare Serenitatis in the northern hemisphere of the Moon.
"We had a failure in the spaceship," said a SpaceIL representative at the time. "Unfortunately, we have not managed to land, we are the seventh country orbiting the moon and the fourth reaching the surface of the moon and it is a tremendous achievement so far."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who was also present appeared to be more positive: "If you are not successful at first, try again."
It seems that Khan took a page from Netanyahu's book.
