SpaceX is hoping to follow the success of its Falcon 9 rocket with a new generation Super Falcon Rocket

SpaceX announced late Thursday evening that it had penned its first ever private passenger to fly around the moon in its new Big Falcon Rocket (BFR).

The identity of the passenger is set to be announced on a webcast on the company's website Monday, September 17 at 6pm PT. Company representatives declined to offer additional details Friday.

These include performing satellite launches, cleaning up space junk, and of course, taking the rich and space curious on trips around the moon.
