The Wall Street Journal: SpaceX plans to send tourists to orbit moon as soon as 2018

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s SpaceX has proposed taking tourists around the moon in as soon as two years, touting such missions as the evolution of public-private partnerships favored by President Donald Trump’s administration.

In Monday’s announcement, Musk’s company said it already accepted “a significant deposit” from two unidentified “private citizens” and envisions sending them to circumnavigate the moon after SpaceX begins routinely ferrying NASA astronauts to the international space station. The manned government trips into orbit could start by late 2018.
