HAWTHORNE, Calif. --
SpaceX will send two people to the moon for a private mission sometime in 2018.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced Monday that two people paid a "significant amount of money" for the trip.
The individuals would launch on the Falcon Heavy rocket from Kennedy Space Center Launch Pad 39A and go around the moon, but not land on the surface.
This mission would take about a week. While SpaceX did not say how much the individuals paid for the mission, the price is comparable to what a crewed mission to the International Space Station would be.
The mission would happen in the first few months of 2018.SpaceX to launch private moon mission in 2018
