Space X, a private space company, has long set the goal of going back and forth between spacecraft and the Moon.
Experts say commercial civil space companies will have a good prospect of Space X's goal of driving travelers in the near future and going to the moon.
Space X's CEO and founder, Elon Musk, announced his company's goal of launching a one-week space shuttle tour around the moon with two customers already paying by the end of 2018.
Wayne Hale, former project manager for NASA's space shuttle program, said: "Space X is a way for people to know that what they're planning is going to be simple, It should not be mistaken. "
"Despite today's technology, launching a manned spacecraft into the moon is still a difficult, very dangerous task, and I do not care who you are," Hale said.
He retired from NASA in 2010 and is now overseeing manned space flight at Colorado's private engineering company, 'Special Aerospace Services'.
Hale said that if NASA, a publicly funded public agency, is taking on what Space X is planning, it will not be doing so aggressively and quickly.
