Elon Musk’s SpaceX will send tourists
                   on a trip around the moon by 2018
The tourist flight will use

    -  a heavy-lift  rocket
           which is already in development
 
It will be an autonomous,  1 week voyage :
    -  the spacecraft will hurtle past the Moon
                                                    but not land on it
    -  then return on an  automated trajectory
                                and  land using a parachute
 
Two private citizens  have already made
                          significant deposits for the trip
