Sending the first private passengers to travel around the moon in SpaceX called an important step towards ensuring that access to space has become commonplace for many people who dream about it. The flight will be made aboard the new reusable booster BFR (Big Falcon Rocket) design which developers have submitted in the past year (at the top of the render of the rocket). According to its creators, this spacecraft will be able in the future to travel not only to the moon, but to Mars.
The secret of who will have the honor to be the first to circumnavigate the earth satellite in the framework of tourism, will be revealed on Monday 17 September. But given the time difference, the ceremony starts early in the morning on September 18. Those who want to live to see the broadcast of this event, needs to connect to it at 4am Kyiv time. You can pre-subscribe to the stream on YouTube to not miss the event.
Twitter users managed to “extract” a bit of information about who may be the first tourist. On the comic issue, not flying to the moon himself Elon Musk, the billionaire replied laconically, posted a smiley depicting the Japanese flag. This suggests that flight will leave either a wealthy Japanese businessman or the person whose roots go back to the land of the rising sun.
