SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard its BFR launch vehicle. Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) is designed to carry people into deep space.


"Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972." says SpaceX website.

SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk will fill in the details Monday (Sept. 17), during a webcast event that begins at 9 p.m. EDT (0100 GMT on Sept. 18). You can watch it on YouTube.

The BFR — which is short for "Big Falcon Rocket" (or the NSFW version, "Big F***ing Rocket) — is still under development. It will consist of the most powerful rocket ever built and a spaceship capable of carrying 100 or so passengers at a time to and from Mars, Musk has said. Both of these elements will be reusable.
