Elon Musk's SpaceX to name first passenger for moon voyage

SpaceX announces new plan to send tourist around Moon

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has posted new photos and comments teasing the company's imminent BFR and lunar tourism update, showing off a few more angles of the spaceship upper stage's new design ahead of a dedicated event later today.

In moves typical of his publicity-seeking style, Musk, who is also the billionaire chief executive of electric auto maker Tesla Inc (TSLA.O), has already teased a few tantalizing details about the trip and the passenger's identity, but left major questions unanswered.

Again, Musk's SpaceX will announce the identity of the Big Falcon Rocket traveler tonight at 6 p.m. PT here. Musk hinted that the mystery person may be from Japan, tweeting a Japanese flag emoji.

"Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history", SpaceX said on Twitter, adding that no one has visited the moon since the last Apollo mission in 1972. Also unknown is how much the amateur astronaut will pay for the trip. "Find out who's flying and why on Monday, September 17". That design is likely to continue undergoing major shifts well beyond the commencement of integrated Grasshopper-style hop tests of BFR's spaceship upper stage (known as BFS), as flight-testing the rocket's major components will nearly invariably result in design changes, be it major or minor. While the trip to the moon is, in and of itself, a fairly bold undertaking, realistically it's just the first step towards Musk's ultimate goal of being the person that facilitated humanity's move to living on two separate planets.

SpaceX in February transfixed a global audience with the successful test launch of its Falcon Heavy, the most powerful operational rocket in the world.
