This is not the first time the California-based company, headed by Internet entrepreneur and Tesla electric vehicle CEO Elon Musk, has touted plans to send tourists around the Moon.

The company will host a media event on Monday, Sept. 17 and other than state that it will be held at their headquarters located in Hawthorne, California and that Musk would "announce the world's first private passenger scheduled to fly around the Moon aboard SpaceX's BFR launch vehicle" - little else has been released.

A collection of 14 human rights organizations, journalists and privacy groups had told the court that the practices were in violation of human rights.

However, the company has remained mum about those plans in recent months. Plans for that flight were eventually delayed; it's unclear if one of the two passengers from that flight will be taking the trip on the BFR.

The company has stated that more details about the event's activities will be announced closer to the event itself and that it would last for about an hour-and-a-half (from 5:30 p.m.to 7:00 p.m. PDT).

SpaceX has established its bona fides in the aerospace business by transporting supplies to the International Space Station and by completing the tricky maneuver of recovering rockets after launch so that they can be reused. Its design was first presented almost a year ago, and the concept boasted a single system that included a booster and a ship that could travel to the moon and Mars.

The new strategy is to still fly around the moon, but using an even bigger SpaceX rocket still in development that has its own dedicated passenger ship.
