First private moon flight passenger to invite creative guests

Automobile

He added that he anticipates SpaceX's Starlink satellite system to be operational by then, which he said should aid in the broadcast, particularly when the moon is between the Earth and the spaceship.

Maezawa gained his riches by founding two major Japanese online retailers, Zozotown and Start Today, which have made him one of the wealthiest people in Japan. He hasn't said who they might be or how much he is paying for the trip. According to Forbes, the state Mousavi is estimated at $ 2.9 billion. But, he said he's already made a substantial down payment on the flight, and that the cost will significantly offset the cost to SpaceX to make it happen. "I don't like being alone, so I want to share these experiences and things with as many people as possible, so that is why I choose to go to the moon with artists!"

Like his sharing of art, Maezawa said on Monday that he also wants to share his experience of seeing the moon, explaining why he purchased every seat on the rocket for an undisclosed amount. If all had gone according to schedule, SpaceX would now be gearing up for its first lunar flight, fulfilling its pledge early past year to launch a pair of tourists "faster and farther into the solar system than any before them".

This could be humanity's first lunar visit since 1972, depending on how NASA's latest moon plans shape up.

The Japanese billionaire is also known as a contemporary art collector and curator with a large collection at his Contemporary Art Foundation in Tokyo, which features works of various renowned painters like Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Alexander Calder, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Musk's vision of an interplanetary future may be somewhere in between dreams and delusion, but at the very least he has helped inspire a new generation of enthusiasts, the way the Apollo era did in the 1960s. The company will use the extra space to store lots of food, water, fuel and spare parts, in case something goes wrong during the flight. "I don't know", Musk said.

Still, when asked by reporters if Musk would be a passenger, he left the door open to the possibility.

The first space tourism flight conducted by SpaceX will take place aboard the Big Falcon Rocket, which so far has only been shown in designs and images, and which may not be ready to fly a human crew sooner than 2023. "This will look really epic in person", Musk said.

"All right. Maybe we will both be on it", Musk said to cheers and applause. That flight, which SpaceX announced in February 2017, was to launch atop the company's Falcon Heavy rocket before the end of 2018.

The BFR spacecraft's shape is reminiscent of the space shuttle, the bus-like U.S. spaceships that carried astronauts to space 135 times from 1981 to 2011.

The company noted that the trip will last about a week.

Virgin's trip will cost about $250,000.
