A flight around the moon would cost about $100 million, Faranetta said.


I wonder if it's inclusive of tax.

I'm struggling to think of anything that's commercially viable to exploit on the moon. Tritium? Tourism? Strategic military advantage? Scientific research and development? What ever it is it'd want to be lucrative to justify the travel.
