As the race between spaceflight companies Virgin Galactic, SpaceX and Blue Origin heat up, those who can afford will be able to travel to low Earth orbit and possibly even around the moon.

In late 2018, tourists will be heading into space and there is a race on to get them there. Virgin Galactic will at last take paying customers beyond the stratosphere. But their efforts might be eclipsed by SpaceX, a company planning to send two tourists around the Moon. Taking them farther into space than any human since 1972.
