SpaceX does take passengers on its trips around the Moon and we have heard the name of the first man to pay for the opportunity, Yusaku Maezawa, a Japanese billionaire. It does not come as a surprise.
He can definitely afford the trip, but for him, the journey to the Moon means more than just seeing our planet’s only natural satellite up close. Maezawa wanted to make one thing clear though, he wants to make the trip with the woman he loves by his side.
The 44-year-old Japanese billionaire is searching for a lifelong partner to go with him to the Moon, a trip that is definitely very expensive. This endeavor is scheduled to take place in 2023.
While seeking a suitable partner, Maezawa wants to make sure that the whole journey is documented and available to the public to watch. This is why interested viewers can be part of the story by catching a show called “Full Moon Lovers,” broadcasted by Abema TV.
On the show’s application website, Maezawa said that when the opportunity came to him, he was overcome with pride and embarrassment so he thought of turning down the proposal. However, when he realized this was a once in a lifetime chance, he had a change of heart and took it.
He shared that as the feeling of emptiness and loneliness slowly consumed him, he thought about loving one woman. So he set out to find his life partner. That is not all, he also wishes to show his love and desire for world peace from outer space.
Yusaku Maezawa made his fortune by founding Zozo, a Japanese fashion online retailer. He does have some requirements though. The applicants must be 20 years old and older, positive, have a bright personality, and most importantly, are fascinated by the idea of going to space as well as world peace.
Back in September, Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX made public that Maezawa was the first private passenger onboard the company’s rocket. The billionaire will make the trip with some artists on onboard the Starship and Super Heavy Rocket. Maezawa, an art collector himself, wants the artists to create space arts by the inspiration they have after the journey.
He has a website dedicated to this project with the title #dearMoon. The qualified applicants are fashion designers, painters, film directors, musicians, and some others.
His search for a life partner seems crazy but considered what Maezawa usually does, it is not so outlandish at all. Some have thought that these are just stunts. Back in 2019, he took Twitter by storm by making public that he would give $10,000 for each of the first 100 users of Twitter to follow and retweet him. This generous give away resulted in the tweet getting 5.48 million retweets, breaking the social media platform’s retweet record.
Recently, he launched a contest on Twitter with the total prize of $9 million for 1,000 people. He said that this was his attempt to see if money could make people happy. However, the contest was over on the 7th of January.
This is also the closing time of Maezawa’s application period for his trip to the Moon. According to Abema TV, he will reach his final decision on who will be his beloved life partner at the end of March. Obviously, for him, it only takes two months to find out a person to share his life with.
