Reported: SpaceX to fly two tourists around the Moon next year

Elon Musk chief executive of SpaceX said a “significant deposit” for the week –long trip, would travel by spaceship being developed for NASA astronauts-as well as a heavy-lift rocket that is yet to be flown. He also added that he hopes the privately funded flight- the first ever to travel beyond the international Space Station will happen in late 2018.  

But Elon Musk neither revealed the name of the customer nor the amount of money has been paid. However there were questions of whether the flight will be safe? And the customers are aware of the dangers of space travel, Mr. Musk said: “they are not certainly naïve and we will do everything we can to minimize that risk, but it’s not zero. But they are coming into this with their eyes open.”  

The two passengers are going to fly to Moon but they will not land on the Moon surface, and now they are going through a series of health tests and training for their autonomous flight.
Before the customers take place there will be test flight of the Crew Dargon capsule they will be travelling on is scheduled for later this year.

While the company enjoyed the successes of its involvement into space travel where there was some failure too.
Such as Falcon 9 rocket exploded on a Launchpad in Florida destroying more than $200m worth of equipment.
