SpaceX could not do this without NASA. Can't express enough appreciation. https://t.co/uQpI60zAV7— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 28, 2017
A statement from SpaceX revealed the two unknown passengers had placed a hefty deposit for the trip and we will know more about the fearless travellers once they have passed initial health exams to make sure they are fit enough to jet off into the great unknown.
The company said of the endeavor, “Like the Apollo astronauts before them, these individuals will travel into space carrying the hopes and dreams of all humankind, driven by the universal human spirit of exploration.”
