ELON MUSK UNVEILS FIRST TOURIST FOR SPACEX ‘MOON LOOP

Elon Musk’s company SpaceX has unveiled the first private passenger it plans to fly around the Moon is Japanese billionaire and online fashion tycoon Yusaku Maezawa, 42, as he announced: “I choose to go to the Moon.” The mission is planned for 2023. Only 24 humans have visited the Moon – all of them Americans; 12 of them landed on the moon. NASA’s Apollo 17 in December 1972 marked the last time humans landed on the moon or went beyond low Earth orbit. The mission is reliant on a rocket that has not been built yet, and Mr. Musk cautioned: “It’s not 100% certain we can bring this to flight.”
