The thought of traveling to space is a prospect that most people have had ever since they were little kids. Well, for two tourists, their dreams will soon become a reality!
Yesterday, CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk, announced that two people have already put down a substantial amount of money for a trip around the moon in 2018! Musk said that the tourists will go through extensive fitness training for the week long trip. That’s probably a good idea!
It has been reported that other tourists have paid Russia $20 million to go to the International Space Station and the United States has paid $80 million per seat for astronauts to go there. It seems absolutely insane to pay that much to go up into space.
SpaceX has not revealed the cost that the “space tourists” paid for their trip.
