On Starship, SpaceX will fly the first space tourist, according to Entrepreneur Dennis Tito ...

Two additional space tourists are expected to fly on the Starship rocket, according to SpaceX: Dennis Tito, the world''s first-ever space tourist in 2001, and his wife, Akiko.

The couple paid an undisclosed amount to fly around the moon onStarship once the vehicle is complete. They will travel with 10 unidentified passengers on a roughly week-long journey. It''s unclear if the other passengers have been selected yet.

It may take a while before the mission begins, and there''s still no intention. Starship is expected to take a fourth passenger mission that was completed after SpaceX uses the vehicle to land astronauts on the moon for NASA and following trips from other people who purchased rides on the vessel.

There is also the fact that Starship has yet to travel to space. SpaceX has yet to deploy an uncrewed version of the vehicle to orbit, which, according to Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, might happen as soon as November. Starship must also demonstrate that it can refuel while in space so it can reach the moon''s vicinity, and it requires the necessary life-support systems and other equipment to keep human alive.

I know this rocket will be tested backwards and forwards, and he said there will be hundreds of flights before he''s flying. We''re not going to fly next year. It''s a long time.

Tito became the first civilian space visitor to visit the International Space Station, paying $20 million (nearly Rs. 1,64,500 crore) to acquire a seat on Russia''s Soyuz rocket for a week-long visit. At the time, NASA wasn''t satisfied.

As part of his journey, space tourism has expanded rapidly, and NASA has expanded the ISS to new commercial activities. Nearly a dozen people have been greeted there by a company called Space Adventures. Axiom was the first all-civilian crew to arrive at the space station in April.

Paying customers are able to get a brief taste of space by purchasing tickets on suborbital vehicles from Jeff Bezos'' Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic, which send their passengers to the edge of space and back.

SpaceX has also entered the space-tourism market. In 2021, a full civilian crew, led by billionaire Jared Isaacman, flew into orbit for three days on a SpaceX Crew Dragon, a mission called Inspiration4.

After a friend of his wife discussed working with the company personnel, Tito was asked if he wanted to return to space, either to visit the space station or on a quick trip to orbit.

No, I want to go to the moon, Tito said. And then I looked at Akiko just when I said that, and she said me too.''And that''s how it started.

Dennis Tito, who is 82, has been able to enter orbit and into deep space since he was a kid. He admitted that he''s been focused on staying fit while waiting for Starship''s development. He and his wife, 57, have two American weightlifting records for an 80-year-old.

Whatever will be, will be. It will take a certain amount of time, but it will be ready, and it will be safe when it''s completed, according to Tito. It''s more difficult to know what time I have on this planet.
