First Private Passenger on Lunar Starship Mission

  • Published on:  9/18/2018
  • SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our Starship launch vehicle - an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space.

    Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972. Find out who’s flying and why on Monday, September 17 at 6pm PT.

    Weird to think 100 years from now they might play this video at a history museum

  • PretentiousPainters (Mar 13, 2019)

    Great comment Noah, very wise thought

  • Ofer Krupka (Mar 12, 2019)

    And they will add your comment below the TV in the museum.

    "Estimated development cost for BFR is about 5 billion dollars.""Next question?""How much will BFR cost to develop?"I swear these journalists need to pay attention or think about their questions. Or both.

    Been working and living in Japan for a while now... A week ago no one knew Elon Musk, his name, or SpaceX. Now I think the entire country knows his name, and he's on TV every damn night. Way to punch your way through to Japan Elon, he was a great choice.

  • Guess this means he's changing the world😏😁

    Is this really a big news in Japan?

  • Kevin CCIE (Sep 20, 2018)

    The Japanese guy is not bad. He was actually clear as can be for a non-english speaking dude. He must have practised hard for that decent presentation.

  • Kaze LAB Games (Jan 25, 2019)

    yes, he did a good job for a non-english speaker.

  • righttoliberty1 (Oct 4, 2018)

    He did awesome. Check out his website!

    This is one of the most beautiful things to be announced ever in my lifetime. To see a person, not part of any government related or funded mission/adventure, pay to take some of the most beautiful minds, in his eyes, is awe inspiring. I hope we see a trend in flashy space travel.

  • Renae Terry (Nov 19, 2018)

    I can't wait to be a passenger along with my two kids. This is definitely a goal worth reaching! Dreams can come true and my negative mother told me today that I'm crazy for saying that our family goal is to go to the moon. UGGGH!!! Really, I now know why you should never tell anyone, including your mother, what your goals are. They'll think that you're crazy and laugh in your face while they are slobbering their drunken words. I'll get the last laugh!!! Nothing like someone telling you, you can...

    +Evan Kearney But it started as a private company, and they'd made plenty of successful launches prior to the falcon heavy.

  • Kiki Tay (Sep 25, 2018)

    Elon is so cute, you can actually tell when he gets physically excited talking about certain topics, he turns into a small boy for a moment, talking and dreaming about SpAce, and sPaCeSHeepss! Shows the adorable human side of him! 1:40:12min He came a long way from dreaming as a boy, now he's actually living out his dreams.. Awww..

    These journalists are obsessed with money. Who cares how much he's paying?

  • Cawfee Dawg (Mar 3, 2019)

    People in general get wacky and nuts when it comes to money... *points at the president of the us*

  • Bill Davis (Feb 21, 2019)

    Yah its funny how this guy has done this in such a short amount of time and with a small budget, he reuses his rockets. Its almost as if its actually been easy, we just needed someone to actually do it! This guy will be a major hero in the future of mankind.
