SpaceX is teaming up with Space Adventures, an American space-tourism company, to send a small number of tourists into space as early as 2021, Engadget reported on Tuesday.
There’s not much information about how the people will be chosen, and The Verge reported Space Adventures wasn’t yet revealed pricing details. A spokesperson for SpaceX wasn’t immediately available for comment, Business Insider reported.
The agreement comes several weeks after SpaceX opened an online booking tool for sending satellites into space on the Falcon 9 rocket, with payload prices starting at $1 million.
SpaceX, founded in 2002 by Elon Musk, manufactures and launches rockets and spacecraft with the goal of lowering the cost of space travel and eventually enabling humans to colonize Mars.
According to Business Insider, flight tests for the upcoming tourism trip appear to have fixed problems that resulted in an explosion in April and demonstrated that the passenger capsule could release and land in the Atlantic during launch in case of malfunction.
But space tourism isn’t the only frontier SpaceX is pioneering. The Falcon 9 launch service caters to customers who want to send small satellites into space but can’t afford a full rocket, which can cost more than $60 million, according to TechCrunch.
