U.S. Company Looks to Send Commercial Flights to the Moon

Golden Spike hopes to get it done by the end of the decade

A U.S. company founded by ex-NASA executives says it plans to offer commercial flights to the moon by the end of the decade.

The company, named Golden Spike, estimates it will cost $1.5 billion to send two people to the moon and back for up to two days.

It plans to sell the flights to "nations, individuals, and corporations with lunar exploration objectives and ambitions," at a cost it says is a fraction of similar government-run lunar programs.
