Japanese billionaire Yasaku Mejawa has returned to Earth after completing a 12-day space trip. He is scheduled to travel to the International Space Station in 2023, completing a practice run under Alan Musk’s plan to visit the moon via SpaceX.
Yasaku, who embarked on a Soyuz spacecraft from Kazakhstan’s launch center Yojo Hirano and Russian astronaut Alexander Misurkin on December 8, landed at the same location on Monday, December 20. Yasaku Mejawa has been visiting the International Space Station for the past decade.
Billionaire Mejawa, one of Japan’s most talked about celebrities, spared no effort to entertain his social media followers by taking pictures of his hometown in Chiwa prefecture, Japan, making tea in a zero-gravity zone and lacking comfortable underwear from the space station.
Remember that Alan Musk’s company SpaceX will be the first private passenger to reach the moon in 2023.
Billionaire Mejawa, who sold his online fashion business to JoJo Softbank in 2019, is looking for eight people to accompany him on a trip to the moon. Applicants will also need to pass a medical examination and an interview to go on a lunar journey with Mejawa.
