Elon Musk’s Space X has revealed it will fly two private passengers on a space tousim flight around the Moon and back in 2018.

The flight, which would be the first time humans have ventured beyond low-Earth orbit since 1972, would use a Falcon Heavy rocket which would launch a human-rated Dragon capsule. Further details, such as the identities of the space tourists and the cost of the trip are yet to be revealed. Speaking to reporters after the announcement, Musk revealed that the passengers would be the only crew onboard the capsule, the Dragon capsule being highly automated.
