In Cryptic Tweet, Elon Musk’s SpaceX Says It Has Signed Up The First Moon Tourist

Elon Musk’s Space X announced that it has signed up its first private tourist for a trip around the moon. Like many Elon Musk-associated announcements, the reveal was large on hype and light on additional details.

Despite the announcement on Twitter, made late on September 14, no timetable or details about the mission, including the name of the first space tourist, were revealed. The mission is planning on using SpaceX’s largest rocket, called the BFR. However, according to reports, this rocket is still under development and could be held up for another year or two before even making a test flight.

The only hint provided by Musk was that the passenger may be Japanese, tweeting a Japanese flag in response to a question who the voyager may be.

SpaceX has pitched the venture as “an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space.” More details on the plan are set to be released next Monday.

Elon Musk claims that the BFR is going to be larger and more powerful than any rocket in history. The way the news was announced indicates to us that Musk wants to shine a serious public spotlight on the mission. Whether or not there is alternative reasoning for doing so (such as taking the spotlight off of Tesla) is unclear.

Early this year was the first time Musk unveiled plans for the BFR and its attached aircraft. He indicated then that he wanted to try and use them to take private passengers, as well as astronauts, deeper into space and toward the moon.

Like many statements Musk has made in the past, this latest one should probably be taken with a grain of salt. Back in 2017 Musk said that he wanted to take “space tourists” around the moon by the end of 2018. Back then, the plan was to use a human-rated version of the already existing Dragon spacecraft, on top of a 27 engine Falcon Heavy rocket (pictured above) that has cost SpaceX about $1 billion.

By the time the Falcon Heavy rocket had its first launch early in 2018, Musk had already indicated that it may not be used primarily going forward. At that point, a spokesperson for SpaceX had said that Musk’s initial timetable to send people around the moon by the end of 2018 was going to need to be pushed back “to at least mid-2019 and likely longer”. The use of the BFR rocket seems to be an indication that they have given up on past plans and are now pursuing a different direction.

Given the recent negativity surrounding Tesla and recent auto industry executive comments that Musk may be better suited to work at SpaceX, we’re wondering if this isn’t a piece of a larger plan to pivot Musk’s full time attention away from Tesla.

    I’m coming to a horrific realization folks. I don’t think we can vote our way out of our problems. I think democracy and women’s rights will end in white extermination.

    Do the right thing for all the strivings of your ancestors and for the good of future generations of our people.

    Our people.

    Our people.

    Our people.

    • Menzoberranzan says:

      I think we can shoot our way out of our problems.

      • TharSheBlows says:

        Shoot our way out of our Problems? Yep, so far works very well for the US Government of Global Fascist Thief Pigs destroying the globe, nations, cultures and people.

        There is your first clue, borrow way beyond your means so you can have as many weapons as possible, unlimited supply of ammo and get the jump offensively first, to destroy any opponent that even thinks of getting in your way to rob them blind. Its a disgusting tactic but works very well so far. Oh, and be quite sociopathic narsistic and psychotic seems to help also. No sub consciousness, morality or values either is a plus.

        As far as the end of all humankind, the cell phone WiFi and 5G will pretty much destroy all women’s fertilized eggs with mass electro magnetic radiation. Just give it a few generations and humans are toast. Not only white people but every species. And combine that with poison food, vaccines and pollution. And don’t forget wars based on false flags.

        Why is the US Government at war with White people and Christians like in Syria & Russia, Ukraine and Europe?

        Any Christian Flag Wavers out there? Wake the hell up.

    I must have missed how passing the radiation belt was accomplished. None of the earlier astronauts would swear on a Bible that they went to the moon. Enough proof for me that they never went.

    • lolzngiggles says:

      yeah not gonna lie, space seems more and more make believe, heavy on the beLIEve.

    • durangokidd says:

      Photos from China’s orbitor showed America’s landing site and dune buggy. Do a little research before showing your ignorance, people.

      While it may be possible that the earliest Moon landings were faked for propaganda purposes, (and if so it worked because Russians never landed a man on the Moon) China has proven once and for all time that America put the first man on the moon and our auto junkyard is proof of it.

      No small irony, I think. Abandoned vehicles is what we do best. 🙂

    With millions of views Musk was smoking POT during a live Internet interview.

    Yeah, his security clearance is toast.

    He can no longer have any involvement in Space-X technology.

    Musk is like a bad drunken Ironman episode.

    Musk is a mental case.

    Musk is still trying to reinvent himself.
    He knows just enough to be dangerous.

    Even if I was suicidal…..I would not want
    his face to be the last one I would see.
    Mmmm…nope, not that stupid.

  11. Watched a 16 minute video filmed at the New Mexico observatory that was closed by the FBI the other day. There is no one there. There are no security guards or police on the scene. People are driving up there and looking around. Video is at Zero Hedge. Weird. Probably a case of espionage.

    • TharSheBlows says:

      More info coming out about the FBI taking over the observatory. They were seen attaching new devices onto the towers, probably going to give a fake feed into the observatory to set up the newest boogie man Space Aliens.

      Meanwhile the Rockafellars and Rothchilds that own PG&E electric grid in California have been setting spot fires all over Northern Cali torching individual houses with Laser Spot energy focused on individual houses, in very unusual burn patters never seen before. Entire houses burned to the ground in dust while trees unharmed stand nearby and houses on the other side of the street in perfect pristine condition. Arson using laser energy to start fires Look that one up And it is all because China is taking over California and the Hawaiian Islands in the debt swap with the US Government.

      Go to YTube and search these video titles.

    PLANET X CAUSES RAID AND SHUT DOWN AT SOLAR OBSERVATORY
    NOT UFO

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1018020/Sunspot-Solar-Observatory-FBI-aliens-UFO-conspiracy-theory

    Mac, you might as well add this as a new headline. Lets see how then NSA troll attacks on this site will make any difference, as if they can convince us, as if SHTF IS WILL NEVER COMMENSE.

    And yes my scientist friend told me to not waste time posting here. You assholes of jerkoffs on this site can call me names all you want, with shit about planet X didn’t happen, etc. You may not know why these assholes are trying to start ww3, and war in Syria to get Russia and china to start ww3. They have a much bigger problem to explain to the public and they have not fucking intention of going into the alien contact, and the fact that giants standing over 100Ft tall are occupying that planet, and the fact that all the bases of these giants are all over the moons of Saturn, on Jupiter, since its not a gas giant, incase your wondering since all the info on all the planets of our solar system was falsified in books and taught bullshit planet science at the universities.

    If real preppers on this site think they are planning on having another election, you better think again.

    HCKS.

    Opinions from off the top of stupid peoples heads, are not facts.

    NSA FBI RAIDS OBSERVATORY TO COVER UP PLANET X AND MASSIVE FLEET OF ALIEN SHIPS THE SIZE OF THE EARTH

    Mac, we need a headline on this one. Its not the ufo’s that they are hiding, its the ship of the giant fleets

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1018020/Sunspot-Solar-Observatory-FBI-aliens-UFO-conspiracy-theory

    HCKS.

    • Beaumont says:

      If I was some Medieval kind-of dictator, I would starve the fraudsters in chains, but give the scientific pioneers a rich reward.

      It would be possible to corroborate these claims, without those 6 observatories — possibly, even for a private, citizen scientist.

      If not, I would like to see the Chicken Little, fearmonger people sold to a Chinese I-phone factory, or cleaning after the sheik’s camels.

    • TharSheBlows says:

      Got to have a Boogie man.

      First the boogie mam was Communism. So we fought decades of needless wars across the globe against Communism.

      Then there was Terrorism and we fought the invented terrorists for decades across the globe. And now we realize that was a false flag hoax and we are getting bored with false flag terrorism.

      So now the Government is rolling our the Space Aliens Hoax to get another costly invented decades war going fighting shadows and invented space aliens. And guess what, fir sure our Government will protect us if we give up all the rest of our freedoms and Liberties, property and assets.

      Sooooo.. Watch for Hollywood to kick it into gear with Fake shows like Space Aliens propaganda, and now fake news clips of more fake space ship sightings, and the use of holograms and lasers to shine on the clouds to get dumb people to say they saw a space ship fly across the sky. The FBI and CIA Psyopps are kicking in hijacking observatories and plugging in their Video feeds into the systems to pay recorded mysterious sounds and UFO’s to scare the populace.

      Folks, Its all Fraud, Fake and Psyopps for the weak minded. Sucker born every minute ~ PT Barnum

        “Folks, Its all Fraud, Fake and Psyopps for the weak minded. Sucker born every minute.”

        I’m thinking that “SHTF” will probably be the last site shutdown and “banned for life.” All Mac has to do is stay away from any conspiracy theories that Newtown and Sandy Hook were all just a big government set-up to institute draconian gun control laws, to further their gun confiscation plans, and the SHTF will not find itself attacked by the algorithm and falling victim to “the frequency” like Alex Jones and “InfoWars.”

        • Beaumont says:

          I like (totally) independent or citizen science, but there is a public private partnership, in which dues-paying members can point telescopes, wherever they want, from the comfort of their home computer.

          There’s more than 6 telescopes, readers.

          (For this above reason, the Chinese spying narrative is also tedious.)

          Drills, imhblo, tend to happen where some too-big-to-fail has failed. There is nothing inherently-valuable about those particular places, of which you have made us aware.

  15. The U.S. government won’t allow you to ‘go to the Moon,’ unless you agree to keep the whole fraud a secret, as they did similarly with Wernher von Braun. If there’s any such Moon trip, you’ll know 100% Musk is ‘part of the club.’

    There will be no Moon missions. The entire thing will be a hoax. Get ready for the stage props and CGI.

  16. Houston/Cypress/Katy/Shtf says:

    Joe, we did go to the moon, and we went 30 times, and were warned off. The moon landing video was a fake designed to show us what they wanted to show us, and what the astronauts saw was a lot more serious, like massive ships on the edges of the crater, etc. You are living in a fantasy world. Ever heard of the USS Rossco Hillencotter. I did’t think you even know what that means. Just shut your mouth and go back to your fusion center cubicle, you troll employee.

    HCKS.

    Hahaha! Foolish puny Earthlings! You cannot stop us. You cannot hide. Your leaders have sold you for their crimes against the universe and now we are coming for the payment. Zorlunk fridust impi glink! Hahahahaha!
