SpaceX’s Mission To Fly Non-Astronaut Citizens Will Not Be A Joyride

People are finding it amazing and crazy how SpaceX and Elon Musk are going to bring two citizens to the space to go around the moon. SpaceX's plan will fly two citizens who are not professionals to the moon and back.

Elon Musk and his mission is insanity, said Richard Garriott, a video gaming creator who spent 12 days on the International Space Station in 2008, stated TMZ. Garriott spent about $30 million of his own money just to go to the outer space. But not only did he shelled out a huge amount of money from his own bank account, he also trained long and hard for any circumstances that might happen. He is expecting SpaceX to do the same to the two tourists who will be the passenger of Falcon Heavy Rocket.

SpaceX should train these people long and hard. They should know what to do and should be ready for anything that might happen while they are in space, Garriot explained. These two space passengers should know how to operate every system on board the Dragon 2 spacecraft. The space tourists' money is not enough to guarantee their life, Garriot added.

SpaceX and Elon Musk have not yet revealed the name of the two space tourists. What they disclosed to the public is that the two citizens paid them a large amount of money just to bring them into space and back. With this, Bloomberg has reported that the real space race is between NASA and Space X. SpaceX is winning it as of the moment, they added.

On the other hand, there are still skeptical individuals who do not believe SpaceX can bring two citizens to the moon and back. However, there are also people, who have been guessing who SpaceX will bring, Science Times has reported.

Falcon Rocket and the Dragon capsule have experiences in what they do. Falcon has launched many spacecrafts and Dragon spacecraft has been to space many times. If the plan of SpaceX will indeed become true and will happen, it will start a new era in the space race.
