The BFR rocket and the first passenger around the moon has been announced!

The BFR can carry 100 people and 100 tons to the moon in 2023 and then to Mars!

Only 12 people will be the first passengers (artist, musician, photographer, novelist, architect, sculptor, painter, film director, engineer) as the rest of the capsule will be occupied for supplies, just in case. Trip will take a week and 240,000 miles. The $5B project launch testing to begin next year!
