SPACEX IS SENDING A PASSENGER ON A TRIP AROUND THE MOON

SpaceX has been building a giant rocket that will be able to take passengers around the moon – and is scheduled to announce who that first space tourist will be later today.

The rocket – which they’re calling the Big Falcon Rocket – is expected to be able to transport 150 tons of stuff into low Earth orbit. The reusable rocket will be 348-feet-tall, have 31 engines and will cost $10 billion to finish.

Today’s announcement is a big deal, of course, because only 24 people have been to the Moon in history – and no one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972. (The Verge)
