The 50th anniversary of first lunar orbit is next December 2018. The famous photo, "Earthrise" was taken by Apollo 8 crewmember Bill Anders on December 24, 1968


Elon Musk is hoping to commemorate this anniversary by taking two unnamed tourists around the moon for an undisclosed price.

If he keeps developing the Falcon 9 Heavy and the latest Dragon crew capsule, he might be able to. If he instead focuses on the BFR, there's no way that monster will be ready in time.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.
