SpaceX Will Take Tourists Around The Moon

Saturday, 27 June 2020

The American private rocket company SpaceX has announced that two people have paid it to orbit the moon.

Alan Musk, the owner of SpaceX, says the mission is planned for 2018 and that tourists have paid a hefty sum in advance.

He added that after 45 years of this journey, man will travel back to space.

The test flight of the two unnamed spacecraft will take place later this year.

Alan Musk said the project was made possible with the help of the US space agency NASA.

He added that the two men would travel very fast and far in the solar system as no one has done before.

He also refused to reveal the identities of the men, saying they both knew each other and were not Hollywood rights.

"Physical training and testing of these people will begin later this year," he said.

The first mission will have no name and is likely to depart in the second quarter of 2018.

He did not make it clear that these first tourists knew there would be a danger. "We will do everything possible to minimize the risk, but it will not end."

In this journey, tourists will circle around the moon and get close to its surface, but they will not land on the moon.

The United States has not sent astronauts to the moon since 1970.
