Space X - Send people to the moon by 2018/19?

Postby out in space on Fri Mar 03, 2017 10:44 pm

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has announced the company plans to send two private citizens into orbit around the moon by 2018. But how realistic is Musk's goal?

In the aerospace industry, there's a saying: space is hard.

It may seem like an obvious conclusion, but the challenges of such a project are unlike those in any other type of industry. And while SpaceX has certainly proven that it can overcome hurdles, there's a lot the private company needs to address before sending people to orbit the moon.

Seems more Star Trek than reality based. Less that a year from now, seems out there. Another toy for the Rich to
aim for?
