Billionaire Wants To Take You to the Moon
Talk about an out-of-this-world date! Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa announced this week that he's on the hunt for a special lady friend he can take to the moon and back--and we don't mean metaphorically.
"Yusaku Maezawa looks for a female partner to go to the moon with him," reads an announcement on his website. "He has a long-held dream of going into space. He wants to visit such a special place together with a special someone. Through serious, one-on-one planned matchmaking, Maezawa looks to find his life partner."
The Guardian adds that the 44-year-old's outer-space excursion would take place in 2023 on on Elon Musk’s Big Falcon Rocket--a yet-to-be-launched spacecraft that will also purportedly transport up to 100 people to Mars someday.
Meanwhile, if you're interested in Maezawa's offer, you only have a few more days until January 17 to apply and you must be over 20 years old, interested in space travel and possessing a “bright and positive” personality.
The winner would also be featured in a documentary series called Full Moon Lovers. If Maezawa's name sounds familiar, it could be because last week, he said he was giving away a total of $9 million to 1,000 of his random Twitter followers to see whether money can truly buy happiness. I guess he's doing everything and everything to get his name out there, and it's working.
I'll probably throw an app in just to see. Who knows, love could be found in space.
