News					SpaceX CEO Elon Musk teases BFR update with new rocket launch renders

While the trip to the moon is, in and of itself, a fairly bold undertaking, realistically it's just the first step towards Musk's ultimate goal of being the person that facilitated humanity's move to living on two separate planets. Intriguingly, he wants to take six-to-eight artists from different countries with him, with the plan to exhibit the works inspired by the journey at a later date. "That is why I choose to go to the moon with artists!"

The new BFR moon mission presumably will replace the original Falcon Heavy flight touted by Musk previous year.

"Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the moon", he said. SpaceX says that only 24 humans have visited the Moon or its orbit in history, with the last one traveling on a 1972 Apollo mission.

SpaceX announced yesterday (Sept. 17) that the Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa, who founded the e-commerce company Zozo, has purchased all the seats aboard a BFR vehicle that will launch on a weeklong trek around the moon as early as 2023.

He is the bravest person - and the most willing to do so - and he was the best adventurer I think.

Billionaire Yusaku Maezawa declared "I choose to go the the moon" after being introduced by SpaceX's chief executive Elon Musk at the company's headquarters in California. The mission is slated to take flight in 2023.

The flight would have used the company's Falcon Heavy rocket and Dragon crew capsule, taking the pair on a loop around the moon before returning home.

The rocket itself is not yet built and Musk said that the mission was "not 100pc certain".

The system's spaceship, which will ride atop a rocket booster, is expected to carry up to 100 people and 150 tons of supplies.

"This is risky. This is not a walk in the park", Elon Musk warned at a crowded press conference at the rocket maker's headquarters near Los Angeles International Airport.

The Big Falcon Rocket will be almost 400 feet long and equipped with a reusable booster rocket that will produce 200 tons of thrust.

Short sightseeing trips to space aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket are likely to cost around $200,000 to $300,000, at least to start, Reuters reported in July.

Musk, who is well-known for issuing overly ambitious schedules, said during a Q&A in March that he hoped to begin testing the spaceship portion of the BFR sometime in 2019.
