To the Moon…

matt-benson-9223Just a little fun for our first Frivolous Friday post of March! SpaceX, the company that is planning on sending a manned mission to Mars in the future, has just announced that  it will send TWO people to the moon in 2018.

Now, before you start packing your bags, the two individuals have already been chosen, and they have paid a “significant” deposit to make the trip. While it won’t actually land on the moon, the SpaceX flight will last about a week, and will allow the participants lots of time to ponder life in space.

This flight will launch near Cape Canaveral, from the same launch pad as the Apollo missions. This will be the first visit to the moon in 45 years.

Would you pay to go to the moon?
