SpaceX books private passenger flight around the Moon

SpaceX is hoping to follow the success of its Falcon 9 rocket with a new generation Super Falcon Rocket

SpaceX has stated that the BFR would be capable of sending crews to the Moon and Mars.

They would have blasted off aboard a Falcon Heavy rocket. However the passengers were never named and the flight has yet to materialize.

SpaceX declined an AFP request for more details, but said further information would follow Monday at an event lasting from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm (0030 GMT to 0200 GMT). No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972, said the company.

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. Its design was first presented almost a year ago, and the concept boasted a single system that included a booster and a ship that could travel to the moon and Mars.

The journey will see SpaceX put its new reusable BFR rocket through its paces.

He introduced the BFR, composed of a rocket and spaceship, last year, saying it was aimed at allowing people to colonize Mars and that the company wanted to land two cargo ships on the Red Planet in 2022.

"I feel fairly confident that we can complete the ship and launch in about five years", Musk said.
