SpaceX plans to send private citizens around the moon…. Next year

SpaceX plans to fly two wealthy tourists around the moon next year. NASA has certainly been involved here but, given that the current U.S. president plans to ask for cuts to science spending, it will be increasingly necessary for private visionaries to step up their game.

(I recognize it is more complex than that, given how much SpaceX currently works with government-funded agencies like NASA).
