SpaceX to send tourist around Moon

On Twitter, Musk's space firm wrote: 'SpaceX has signed the world's first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle-an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of travelling to space.

Just days after conducting another successful launch of one of its Falcon 9 rockets, SpaceX has announced that it's CEO and Lead Designerr, Elon Musk, will be making an announcement regarding the first private passengers who will ride the company's Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) to a destination only 24 others have traveled to. "Find out who's flying and why on Monday, September 17", the company tweeted.

SpaceX said late Thursday it had signed the world's first private passenger to fly around the Moon.

But Musk later hinted that the passenger could be Japanese by tweeting the country's flag when asked if he was the one being sent.


SpaceX is a key commercial partner to NASA, and is working on a crew ship that will make its first flight to the orbiting International Space Station next year, restoring access to space from U.S. soil for the first time since 2011, when the space shuttle program was retired after 30 years. Musk has designs on sending spacecraft to Mars and establishing a colony. there.

"SpaceX will probably build 30 to 40 rocket cores for 300 missions over five years". SpaceX spokespeople told the Wall Street Journal that the mission as still going to happen but remained tight-lipped about more details.

SpaceX's tweet also included a render for a new version of the BFR vehicle. "And we believe we can do this with the revenue we receive from launching satellites and servicing the space station".
