SpaceX plans to reveal the identity of its first Moon trip passenger on Monday
SpaceX has long been bullish on the idea of selling seats on its spacecraft to private citizens who are willing to pony up enough cash for a trip into space. The company has said in the past that it will do just that once the technology is in place, but last night the official SpaceX surprise everyone by announcing that the reveal of the very first paid Moon passenger is coming on Monday, September 17.
The trip, which will take the person (or persons?) on a round-trip journey around Earth's only natural satellite, will be made possible by SpaceX's BFR. The 'Big Falcon Rocket' (or Big F*cking Rocket, depending on who you ask) isn't anywhere close to actually getting off the ground today, so there are a whole lot of questions the company will need to answer when it makes the announcement.
