The Moon: Now Open For Tourism

One of Elon Musk’s companies, SpaceX, said that it has signed its first private moon tourist, also stating that this trip is part of its plan to making space travel accessible for “everyday people.”

SpaceX, made the announcement Thursday evening from its official Twitter.

The BFR is most likely still several years away from its inaugural flight, and even further from carrying humans to the moon. Musk has said before that his “BFR” rocket will be the largest and most powerful rocket built to date.

Musk, who tends to be a bit theatrical and overly ambitious when announcing schedules, said in March 2018 that he “hoped to begin testing the spaceship portion of the BFR sometime in 2019”.

SpaceX’s Chief Operations Officer Gwynne Shotwell gave a more realistic time frame for BFR’s test launch in April, saying it would likely occur “within a decade.”
