    Two tourists are paying SpaceX for a trip around the moon next year.

    SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced Monday afternoon that the travelers had already placed a significant deposit.

    I'll pass for now. This guy and his crew are fantastic
    but their rockets have gone BOOM in the past.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    I'd like to recommend rosie o donnel as the first passenger but I don't think the rocket would ever get off the ground with her fat ass on top of it.

    NASA's unnecessary statement; "We will work closely with SpaceX to ensure it safely meets the contractual obligations to return the launch of astronauts to U.S. soil and continue to successfully deliver supplies to the International Space Station. "For more than a decade, NASA has invested in private industry to develop capabilities for the American people and seed commercial innovation to advance humanity's future in space. "NASA is changing the way it does business through its commercial partnerships to help build a strong American space economy and free the agency to focus on developing the next-generation rocket, spacecraft and systems to go beyond the moon and sustain deep space exploration.", makes them sound like Christopher Columbus' boat-builder plugging his product, since the only thing NASA's doing is renting the launch-pad.
