A private expedition to the Moon.
The last humans to walk on the Moon were Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmidt. They left the Moon’s surface on December 14, 1972 and returned to Earth in their Apollo spacecraft. Since then no human has been closer to the Moon than low Earth Orbit. We plan on changing that.
Using flight proven Russian spacecraft we will fly two private citizens and one professional cosmonaut on a free return trajectory around the far side of the moon. They will come within 100km of the Moon’s surface. If you chose to join this mission you will see the illuminated far-side of the Moon, and then witness the amazing sight of the Earth rising above the surface of the Moon. We expect our first mission to launch by 2017.
Mankind can only progress to become a space faring race by taking the small steps necessary to reduce the costs of access to space. This mission will be one of those small, but very significant steps.
