  • Elon Musk Reveals First Person Set To Go To Moon With SpaceX

Maezawa is worth an estimated $2.9 billion, according to Forbes, and founded Japan's largest online fashion retailer.

Mr Maezawa made headlines previous year after paying $110.5m (£85.4m) for a painting by the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat at an auction in NY. He bought an entire spaceship, and he intends to people it with 6-8 artists from different countries and representing different styles of art.

"I could not pass up this opportunity to see the moon up close", Maezawa said. "These masterpieces will inspire the dreamer within all of us", he told reporters.

Until now, Americans are the only ones who have left Earth's orbit.

Only 24 humans have visited the Moon - all of them Americans; 12 of them landed on the moon. SpaceX's ability to reach Mars and set up an outpost will depend on it.

The era of space tourism began in 2001 when California businessman Dennis Tito paid for a journey on a Russian rocket to the International Space Station.

Musk said: "The goal for SpaceX, the reason for creating SpaceX, was to accelerate the advent of humanity becoming a space-faring civilisation; to help advance rocket technology to a point where we could potentially become a multi-planet species and a true space-faring civilisation".

"He stepped forward", Musk added. "We are honoured that he chose us".

Elon Musk has promised that his Big Falcon Rocket will shuttle passengers to the moon and eventually fly humans and cargo to Mars.

"He did suggest, like, maybe that I would join on this trip", Musk said with a laugh, referring to Maezawa.

His participation in the interviews was also reportedly voluntary, without any promises of leniency made by the prosecutors. It also appears Cohen has been cooperating with state officials in a separate probe dealing with the Trump family charity.

"This is unsafe, to be clear".

The lawsuit brought by Vernon Unsworth, who helped with the rescue of 12 Thai teenagers from a flooded cave in July, seeks $75,000 (£57,000) in compensation and an injunction against Mr Musk to stop further allegations.

"When you are pushing the frontier, it is not a sure thing". "There are chances something go wrong" and "you have to be a fearless person to do that".

After people responded with questions, Musk weighed in and confirmed that the render of the Big Falcon Rocket, which is still in development, is new and "intentionally" created to resemble one seen in a classic Tintin comic. "I thought long and hard about how it would be very valuable to become the first private passenger to go to the moon".

The 106 metre (347 feet) long ship was first announced a year ago, and Musk said the ship will contain up to 40 cabins which will have enough space for 100 people.

This isn't the first time Musk has vowed to send tourists around the Moon.

The moon mission won't be as unsafe as a trip to the Red Planet, but there will still be considerable risk involved. The company now has the Falcon and Falcon Heavy rockets.

The spacecraft will continue on toward the Moon, powered by its own engines.

Entrepreneur Elon Musk's space launch company said last week that the person will fly to the moon aboard a new rocket called the BFR, which is still in development. The company will use the extra space to store lots of food, water, fuel and spare parts, in case something goes wrong during the flight.

Branson's Virgin Galactic has sold tickets for about $250,000, which is more than the median home price in the United States.
