SpaceX books its first passenger to fly around the moon
Although SpaceX has a number of successful launches to its name, it's still yet to reach that ultimate goal of sending a human to space.
As per a tweet on Thursday, the company has signed its first private passenger to fly on its BFR launch vehicle, in what would be "an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space."
The BFR, which Elon Musk said can carry up to 100 people when it was first touted last year, will fly around the moon as part of the personal trip.
