Japanese businessman will pay for you to travel to the moon

A Japanese billionaire is looking for eight volunteers to join him on a journey to the moon.

Yusaku Maezawa, 45, has invited eight members of the public to accompany him on a week-long private mission around the moon in 2023.

Maezawa is the first man to book a spot aboard the new SpaceX ‘Starship’. It has not been made public how much money he paid for the tickets.

The journey will take three days to get to the Moon, loop behind it, and three days to come back.

Maezawa said there will be two key criteria for those who want to apply.
Firstly, he hopes the person will “push their ideas and talents to help other people and greater society in some way.”
Secondly, the person must willing and able to support other crew members who share similar aspirations.
