You’ve always wanted to be an astronaut and travel around the moon, but probably never got further than a space flight simulation video game. SpaceX Dragon Moon Flights make those dreams a reality, and won’t only be exclusive to the highly trained astronauts that have put in tons of time and energy to prepare. Instead, they’re now available for a different elite group — two private citizens who have paid a “significant deposit” to do a moon mission. After a demonstration mission in automatic mode without people on board, lift-off is scheduled to take place from Kennedy Space Center’s historic Pad 39A in the second quarter of 2018. The trip would mark the first time in 45 years that humans have voyaged into deep space and it will take them further and faster into the Solar System than any before them.
