SpaceX is going to send two lucky paying customers on a trip toward and around the moon and back some time next current year.

Why do I have my doubts?

No human being has been beyond low Earth orbit since December 1972 using the economies of scale and the financial leverage and revenue collection power of the world’s most prosperous governments.  So what makes us think that Elon Musk, who’s a nickel-and-dimer by comparison, can pull it off?

I don’t doubt he can do it, but I doubt it will be next current year. Musk (and Bezos) has achieved much that NASA hasn’t already. Landing and re-using the first stage engines was unthinkable for our government space program, but two competing private enterprises have pulled it off and repeated the feat.

Musk is always over optimistic about timeframe whether for his cars or his rockets or his hyperloop. My bet would be on 2019-2020. And he will have to send an unmanned drone on the mission successfully before his billionaire friends will climb aboard for the trip..

I have a feeling there’s some reason for this guys fake space program. There was a spaceplane in orbit for two years doing a black op. There were rumors they want to fake a space invasion. Sounds crazy but these fuckers are desperate. Their fake world of globalism is crashing and burning. A fake space invasion or fake aliens could appeal to all the dumb geeks who buy the crummy crooked scientism. They need distractions now and those fake rockets of Musky the rat could be leading people down a red herring path.

Musk is the greatest snake oil saleman of our generation. This will never happen. If it did ever happen could you even imagine the legal tome that the passengers would have to sign off on & initial each & everyone of the 1000s of pages of legalese…

Whoever goes will have to be quite skilled to dock up with a booster stage already in orbit to send the capsule on a translunar trajectory. These private rockets are nowhere near the scale to put on a one piece ship like the Saturn V.
