SpaceX May Send Private Citizens To The Moon In 2018

Remember when Ralph Cramden often promised his wife, Alice, a trip to the moon? Ralph’s threat may soon become a reality. According to reports, the agency that conducts missions for NASA, plans to send two private citizens on a moon-circling voyage next year.

While the passengers’ names haven’t yet been revealed, we can assume they won’t be seniors. They’ll undergo strict tests and training for the trip, and will be required to build up their wallets as well as physiques. Rumors are that the price of the trip to the moon  will be at least $200,000 each.

During the voyage passengers may hear Sinatra’s voice:
It was just one of those nights,
Just one of those fabulous flights;
A trip to the moon on gossamer wings;
Just one of those things!

Your travel4seniors.com editor recalls three memorable train rides. My first was in January 1942, when my Philly high school senior class went to Washington DC. I was impressed by the city, but remember the experience because it was a historic and hysterical time in U.S. history.

Just three weeks before our train trip, the nation had been shocked into World War 2 by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As we rode our bus through the capital city, we could see armed soldiers at many of the major buildings. They were on steps, at street corners and on rooftops.
