SpaceX is About to Name the First Passenger for Round-the-Moon Flight

Elon Musk’s SpaceX company is going to name the first passenger to fly around the Moon this evening, 17th of September

LOS ANGELES – Tonight, SpaceX is going to name the very first private passenger to fly around the Moon at a special event that will take place today.

Elon Musk is most probably to one who will name the person that will be the 25th individual to swing across the backside of the Moon, and the first since America’s Apollo missions.

The announcement is expected to take place today at 6 p.m. EST at the headquarters of SpaceX, Los Angeles.

The mission is believed to be “an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space” as SpaceX mentioned in a tweet.

However, this is not only a space tourism flight, as the company has far bigger plans.

On Sunday, Elon Musk posted photos that depicted a huge rocket that will be used for the mission, which happens to be the one that the company plans to use in order to create a Mars colony in the next decade. Interestingly enough, the hashtag he used on his next tweet was #OccupyMars.
