Space X to zoom two citizen astronauts to the moon

Space X today said two unnamed private citizens have paid the company a “significant deposit” to fly them to the moon and back to Earth.

“We expect to conduct health and fitness tests, as well as begin initial training later this year. Other flight teams have also expressed strong interest and we expect more to follow. Additional information will be released about the flight teams, contingent upon their approval and confirmation of the health and fitness test results,” Space X stated.

Space X said the mission will take place after the space company launches its unmanned Dragon (Version 2) spacecraft to the International Space Station later this year.
