Assuming no other flights beat SpaceX to its goal and the person aboard isn't a repeat flyer (which has happened only once), the individual aboard SpaceX's first private flight will be the eighth-ever space tourist to leave the Earth's exosphere.

SpaceX, the private space exploration company that tests its rocket motors at its facility in McGregor west of Waco, has signed up a traveler for a flight to the moon.

Only 24 humans have been to the Moon so far, and no one has visited since the 1972 Apollo mission.

The teasing tweet said more details will be revealed on Monday, 17th September via a live webcast that will begin at 9 p.m. EDT (0100 GMT on Sept. 18).

Earlier this year, Musk said the company would be able to focus its investment on the BFR, following the successful launch of the Falcon Heavy.

The company first made plans to fly two private citizens around the moon in February of 2017 using the company's Falcon Heavy rocket and Dragon capsule, but those plans have apparently been revised.

Musk left a clue possibly regarding the flyer's nationality, tweeting the flag of Japan when asked if it was him that would be going on the trip.

SpaceX is a key commercial partner to NASA, and is working on a crew ship that will make its first flight to the orbiting International Space Station next year, restoring access to space from U.S. soil for the first time since 2011, when the space shuttle program was retired after 30 years.
