Two tourists are going on the voyage of a lifetime - a trip to orbit around the Moon.

They will travel close to the Moon's surface before venturing further in the Solar System than anyone else before. Launch company Space X is currently working on unmanned space vehicles, and hopes to have people on board in late 2018.

It's an exciting time for space travel, but in reality space holidays are only going to be an option for the super rich. I still think I'd rather take a trip to an unexplored area on this planet, like the deep ocean.
