Elon Musk's SpaceX revealed the name of the person who is set to become the first private space tourist to travel to the moon: Yusaku Maezawa.
The Japanese businessman is the billionaire founder and CEO of online fashion retailer Zozo.
From the company:
SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle - an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space. Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972.
Yusaku Maezawa sounds like an interesting person. He says he plans to head to the moon "with Earth's top artists.”
He said during the webcast announcement tonight, "If Pablo Picasso had been able to see the moon up-close, what kind of paintings would he have drawn?”
