Space-X has chosen the first passenger to travel around the moon. The lucky person is the CEO of the Zozo online store, Yusaku Maezawa. This was announced by Maezawa at an event. He told me that he chose to go to the moon.
The flight mission to the moon is planned to take place in 2023, a new step in commercializing space travel. The owner of Space-X, Elon Musk explained that every time talking about the first flight about new technology and space, it took courage to do that.
Maezawa has also donated other flight seats to popular artists. But he hasn’t mentioned who the artist is. 6-8 popular artists according to Maezawa are lucky choice artists so if they get a phone call from him then please accept the debt.
Yusaku Maezawa is a successful Japanese businessman. Maezawa is also a drummer for a punk band in Japan. In addition, Maezawa was also famous after he bought a painting of Jean Michael Basquiat for USD 100 million. Yusaku Maezawa’s wealth was obtained from establishing a popular Japanese shopping site, Zozotown.
Before the trip to the moon was carried out, Space-X had completed the rocket itself. Elon Musk calls the rocket that Maezawa will use the biggest and strongest rocket. The rocket is named BFR.
In addition to space tourism, Musk hopes that the BFR can also take people to Mars. In the past, he had said that rocket technology was ready to travel to Mars in 2022 and crew flights two years later.
For costs or tickets to travel to the moon, Musk still keeps it a secret. But Musk explained that the top Japanese businessman had spent significant funds to help finance the Space-X rocket.
