SpaceX is set to announce the first private passenger to fly around the moon on one of its spacecraft, the company tweeted Thursday.

“SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle—an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space,” the Elon Musk-led company wrote in a tweet. “Find out who’s flying and why on Monday, September 17.”
