SpaceX moon passenger to invite artists on journey

Maezawa referred to the future launch as the outcome of a "life long dream" and told attendees, "I choose to go to the moon!"

17, 2018, SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California held a live event.

His current net worth is about $2.3 billion. A video presentation about him said he believes art can help usher in world peace.

'By the way, if you should hear from me please say yes and accept my invitation, ' he said.

SpaceX founder and chief executive Elon Musk outlined a somewhat different mission a year ago.

"As far as me going, I'm not sure", Musk responded. He's taking along artists representing Earth who will contribute to a project called #DearMoon. The mission is set for 2023, if all goes well.

Musk said the Japanese entrepreneur would pay "a lot of money" for the trip, but declined to disclose the exact amount. He made his fortune by founding the wildly popular shopping site Zozotown.

Maezawa is not shy when it comes to spending his riches, as evidenced when he made headlines for shelling out a record $110.5 million for Jean-Michel Basquiat's 1982 painting of a skull previous year.

Musk said the BFR is still in development and will make several unmanned test launches before it takes on passengers.

He also stressed that it's the responsibility of Turkey now to separate the terrorist groups from the moderate ones. The province, the size of Lebanon, has been the beating heart of the rebellion for years.

The flight will be made aboard the Big Falcon Spaceship (BFS). Yusaku hopes to hop on the rocket as early as 2023.

The trip to the Moon is expected to last a week and would carry the first non-American human beyond the Earth's orbit. He did suggest like maybe that I would join on this trip. "That's why I could not pass up the opportunity to see the moon up close".

The tweet about the moon came as Musk faced new problems for another tweet. The BFR, as it is known, is in development, possibly years from flying. The new design, he added, "might be better", but "it's slightly riskier technically". SpaceX says the mission should take about six days.

The first space tourist was Dennis Tito, an American businessman who in 2001 paid some $20 million to fly on a Russian spaceship to the International Space Station.

After an uncrewed demonstration flight this fall and an in-flight abort test, U.S. Air Force Colonel Bob Behnken and former Marine Corps test pilot Doug Hurley will be the first two astronauts to fly in SpaceX's Crew Dragon.

When will "everyday people" get to visit space?

He would be the first private citizen ever to travel so far.

Markowsky said he's wanted to go into space since seeing SpaceCamp, a 1986 movie about a group of teens at a NASA camp who are accidentally sent into space.

Their ventures plan to conduct short suborbital trips during which passengers can briefly experience weightlessness and an expansive view of Earth. Bezos' Blue Origin has been tight-lipped about the price of its tickets, but Reuters reported in July that they could cost in the $200,000 range.
