The mission is planned for 2023 and would be the first lunar journey by humans since 1972.

But it is reliant on a rocket that has not been built yet, and Mr. Musk cautioned: “It’s not 100% certain we can bring this to flight.”

The announcement was made at SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California, on Tuesday.

The company said the flight on board the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) – a launch system that was unveiled by Mr. Musk in 2016 – represented “an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space”.
