Space X, the non-government space exploration outfit lead by Tesla mastermind Eilon Musk who have created rockets that can fly into space and return in one piece and is now challenging NASA in public vs. private space race with plans announced last week to put two private citizens in the orbit of the Moon. Yes, a human being who is not an astronaut will be able to get a trip to the Moon. So how much could it cost? The estimates are being compared to what it costs to send a trained astronaut to the International Space Station, which is between 70-80 million. So save up, the first SpaceX Moon trips are planned to launch in 2018.
This video from the Verge explains the entire process in detail including how SpaceX could charge people for these very special trips.
