Moon mission to be!

As noted in the message on the official page of the company on Twitter, the traveler will be sent into space on board the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) rocket. “Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972,” says SpaceX.

“SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle,” the company said, adding that it will be “an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space.”

The name of the first passenger SpaceX has not yet been announced, however, as far as is known, neither the company nor the client himself doesn’t intend to keep it a secret. It is expected that the name of the first tourist to the moon will be known in the near future.

informed people about the plans to send tourists to open space in early 2017. At the same time, SpaceX claimed that they had already signed contracts with two tourists to fly on a super-heavy rocket Falcon Heavy. The first of these was planned to last a week at the end of 2018, and then this period was postponed until mid-2019.

It’s also worth mentioning, in February SpaceX launched to Mars the Falcon Heavy rocket. As a payload, the rocket used a capsule with Musk’s electric car Tesla Roadster. The car was equipped with CCTV cameras that broadcast from the open space, and behind the wheel of the Roadster, a dummy was put in the space suit SpaceX.
