SpaceX to send two tourists around moon in 2018

If all goes as planned, lift-off for Mr Musk's two moon tourists will occur next year from the same launch pad near Cape Canaveral that the Apollo programme used for its lunar missions.


SPACEX said on Monday two private citizens have paid money to be sent around the moon in what would mark the farthest humans have ever travelled to deep space.

The United States has not sent astronauts to the moon since Nasa's Apollo missions of the 1960s and 1970s.
