Soul.City launches the first local itinerary for SpaceX lunar tourists… an atypical journey, at the heart of the universe.
Ready for moon landing ?
On February 27th, Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced the send-off of two avant-garde tourists to the moon by 2018. The SpaceX program was founded in 2002 with the goal of reducing space transportation costs and enabling the colonization of Mars. Meanwhile, SpaceX has developed the Falcon launch vehicle family and the Dragon spacecraft family, which deliver payloads into Earth orbit.
Following Mr. Musk and SpaceX lead, the team at Soul.City anticipated the demand for ideas of what to do upon landing in this rather exotic destination. Hence the creation of the first ever local itinerary on the moon!
Available now on the Soul.City app to all its users, this unique itinerary promises an unforgettable experience. The moon points of interest are of course intended to evolve, with the expected arrival of brand names looking to bring their products to outer space. The names of Starbucks, McDonald’s or Pizza Hut are obvious possibilities, amongst many others looking for… emerging markets!
What to do on the Moon ?
The Soul.City itinerary takes inspiration from emblematic lunar sites, such as “Taurus Littrow Valley”, where Apollo 17 landed, or “Jackson Crater” and “Aristarchus Plateau”, but also other little known sites that Soul.City users can now discover through the app.
We expect that the first SpaceX tourists may become the privileged testers of the Soul.City lunar itinerary. Their comments and suggestions are welcome! They may wish, however, to first download the itinerary using Soul.City’s “off line” feature, because we do not yet know whether 4G data will be available on the moon by 2018.
The Soul.City technical team also awaits confirmation by Google of the mapping of the moon, not quite functional at press time.
Taking off to new horizons!
As we expect that not every human being will have the opportunity to participate in SpaceX lunar travel, Soul.City has a surprise for you! Deployment of our discovery app in 10 cities worldwide! And to do so, we need YOU!
We’re soon launching Soul.Cityzen, a community where everyone who loves to travel may submit itineraries in their favourite cities. Hang tight… taking off soon!
You may now sign up to be informed on the recruitment launch of our Soul.Cityzens!
