Would you take a Moon vacation in 2018?

The SpaceX Moon mission is going to send two people on a one-week trip around the Moon in 2018. The passengers are not NASA astronauts but two paying customers who have already put down significant deposits for the mission. It’s a trip that will officially put SpaceX in the space tourism business — and it’s also a trip that could spark a small space race with NASA.

The Crew Dragon might land using parachutes or even a water landing, but the animation from SpaceX of it’s propulsive landing techology was too good not to use.
