On Thursday, former NASA executives stepped forward to announce the formation of a private company that plans to take space tourists to the moon by 2020—at a price. “Two seats, 750 each,” former NASA associate administrator Alan Stern said on Thursday. “The trick is 40 years old. We know how to do this.” Stern said the company, Golden Spike, was already in talks with one potential moon tourist. The announcement of the private venture came a day after the release of the National Research Council’s extremely critical review of NASA’s long-term strategy for human spaceflight.
