SpaceX's Giant BFR Rocket Will Launch a Passenger Around the Moon

The flight on its Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) would be "an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of travelling to space", the aerospace company wrote on Twitter.

The tourist will fly in the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) being created to carry people into deep space, the Elon Musk led company said in a tweet.

Although SpaceX has a number of successful launches to its name, it's still yet to reach that ultimate goal of sending a human to space. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972, said the company.

He also confirmed that the rendering of the spacecraft in the company's original tweet is a new version of SpaceX's Big Falcon Rocket (BFR).

In 2017, Space X revealed that two "private citizens" had paid a "significant deposit" to book themselves on a journey around the moon.

No details have been revealed about who the passenger is and why they're flying, but SpaceX said it would reveal all on Monday.

The Falcon Heavy debuted one year after that announcement was made. "And we believe we can do this with the revenue we receive from launching satellites and servicing the space station".
