An opportunity that appears only once in a lifetime: an eccentric Japanese millionaire offers eight slots for people from all over the planet to accompany you on a space tourism trip around the Moon, scheduled for 2023 with the SpaceX.

Yusaku Maezawa, online fashion mogul, collector of contemporary art and patrons, is the first private customer who booked a flight aboard the Starship, the future manned rocket developed by the aerospace company Elon Musk, for a price that has not been revealed.

Initially he hoped to find a friend for his trip around the moon, with a strange contest aimed at “single women over 20”. But the businessman changed his plans after receive 30,000 application and announced that he would invite six or eight artists.

But in a video published on Wednesday, the 45-year-old millionaire announced that he decided on a much broader application process because he is convinced that “every person who does something creative can be called an artist”.

“I invite you to join me on this mission. Eight of you from around the world,” he declared. “I bought all the seats, so it will be a private trip.”

Candidates must meet two criteria: a willingness to “push the limits” of creativity and help other crew members to do the same.

In total, 10 or 12 people will participate in the trip around the moon, explained Maezawa.
