SpaceX promises a Moon vacation in 2018

We heard it was something like $80M these two anonymous and rich tourists will be paying - each, for this one-of-a-kind/once-in-a-life-time 'vacation'...

This week, SpaceX announced a new goal for 2018: sending two people on a one-week trip around the Moon. The passengers are not NASA astronauts but two paying customers who have already put down significant deposits for the mission. It’s a trip that will officially put SpaceX in the space tourism business — and it’s also a trip that could spark a small space race with NASA.
The Crew Dragon might land using parachutes or even a water landing, but the animation from SpaceX of it's propulsive landing techology was too good not to use.
