First private moon flight passenger to invite creative guests

What you need to know about the first tourist that SpaceX is taking around the moon

The rocket should fly at a distance of 200 kilometers from the moon.

"All right. Maybe we will both be on it", Musk said to cheers and applause.

Yusaku Maezawa also revealed that he plans on inviting a few artists to come with him.

"The first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard BFR (Big Falcon Rocket) is fashion innovator and globally recognized art curator Yusaku Maezawa", SpaceX tweeted on Monday.

Maezawa said Monday that the SpaceX BFR rocket will make the trip in 2023.

The reusable 118-meter (387-foot) rocket will have its own dedicated passenger ship.

"This has done a lot to restore my faith in humanity - that somebody's willing to do this", Musk said.

The Japanese billionaire has made a down payment for the mission, but the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

IPhone XS goes on sale, drawing fewer crowds but plenty of fans
The iPhone XS Max is said to have a larger cell at 3,174mAh, which is one of the largest we've ever seen on an iPhone product. Apple will stop bundling the adapter with its next-generation iPhone lineup later this year, according to an Apple Insider.

"He is the bravest person and the most willing to do so, and he was the best adventurer I think", Musk said of Maezawa. He paid $110.5 million for Basquiat's 1982 painting of a graffiti-like black and blue rendition of a human skull, a record price for an American artist, at a Sotheby's auction previous year.

The diminutive Maezawa, who as a young man struggled to find clothes that fit, hopes to revolutionize the fashion industry through his Zozosuit, which, once donned, allows users to upload their body measurements and order a growing number of made-to-measure items. SpaceX has pulled off feats no one thought possible, from the first successful launch to orbit a decade ago to earlier this year, when the maiden flight of its Falcon Heavy rocket put a Tesla Roadster on a trip toward Mars.

"Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the moon".

He said SpaceX has updated the design for the BFR rocket for the third time in three years.

SpaceX President and Chief Operating Officer Gwynne Shotwell said last week that there was "no chance" that Musk's conduct will impact SpaceX's ability to win contracts, and that there's been "no impact at all" on the level of confidence in him on the part of the closely held company's backers. SpaceX, which is under contract by NASA to fly its astronauts to the International Space Station, recently announced it had to delay that first flight to April of next year. "More flight-ready hardware reveals, and some test demonstrations would go a long way to proving their capabilities".

"BFR is an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of travelling to space", SpaceX said in a statement.

Two of Musk's fellow billionaires - Amazon's Jeff Bezos and Virgin Group's Richard Branson - also want to make a business out of space tourism.

In 2016 he sold $250 million worth of stock so he could buy more art. Blue Origin denied the report to CNN, saying ticket prices had not yet been set.
