For the first time in SpaceX talked about plans to organize a tourist fly-through of the moon in February 2017. Initially, the company promised to send two people this year. To launch it was supposed to use the Falcon Heavy rocket. Already at the time of the announcement, the stated date of the flight looked extremely unrealistic. In addition, since then SpaceX decided to abandon the idea of ​​Falcon Heavy certification for manned flights.

SpaceX has not yet announced the date of the tourist flight to the moon.But it is obvious that even in the most ideal case, we are talking about at least several years. At the moment, the first prototype of the BFR is under construction. According to recent statements by the President of SpaceX Gwynn Shotwell, his suborbital tests will begin in the second half of next year. Given the ambition and complexity of the project, the development of the rocket is likely to take a long time.

It is worth noting that SpaceX was not the first to offer a tourist fly-through of the moon. Back in 2011, Space Adventures announced it was ready to send two tourists on a week-long trip around the moon on a modified version of the Russian Union. However, this project was never implemented.
