SpaceX has announced that it has signed an agreement with the first tourist to make a flight around the moon. For this purpose the BFR rocket, not yet built, will be used, reported in the company's Twitter account.

In the history of the space flight, only 24 American astronauts flew to the moon and back. The last time a human foot went on a satellite in 1974, during the mission "Apollo 17". At the same time, today's moon is regarded as one of the most attractive destinations for space tourism. Some companies are not only planning to send passengers for short flights, but also to build hotels where everyone can spend a few days.

SpaceX has announced plans to organize tourist flights to the moon in February 2017. It was expected that two people who had already paid a "significant down payment" would travel this year around Earth's satellite. The space travel, according to the head of the company Ilona Mask, would last about a week. Nevertheless, it was decided to postpone the flight until the BFR – a reusable booster rocket will be built, which in the future will be used for flights to Mars.
