CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla | SpaceX changes plans to send tourists around the moon
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla — SpaceX said it has signed the first private moon traveler, with some changes to its original game plan.
The big reveal on who it is — and when the flight to the moon will be — will be announced Monday at the company’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California.
It’s not the same mission SpaceX founder Elon Musk outlined last year. The original plan called for two paying passengers to fly around the moon this year, using a Falcon Heavy rocket and a Dragon crew capsule.
