On Sept 13, 2018, SpaceX announced a new plan to send a tourist around the moon on its Big Falcon Rocket, a massive launch vehicle designed to carry people into deep space.

"SpaceX has signed the world's first private passenger to fly around the moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle — an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space," the company said on Twitter.

Who will be the passenger, and why do they want to do this? This will be revealed next Monday, Sept 17.
