Yusaku Maezawa a Japanese billionaire is searching for a female “life partner” for Space X’s first tourist voyage to the moon which is planned for 2023.
In 2018 it was announced that Maezawa would be the first ever civilian to fly around the moon on a Starship rocket which will be the first journey to the moon since 1972.
The Japanese online fashion retailer has setup a website in search for his “life partner” and applications close on 17 January at 10am local time.
On his website the billionaire said, “I have lived exactly as I’ve wanted to up until now. For 21 years, I’ve been working running around as a company president, causing lots of people to worry along the way, but also receiving a lot of love and support from people, too.
“In the end, I’ve been able to put a temporary end to that brilliant life as company president.
I’m sure I’ve been able to acquire my share of money, social status, and fame along the way. But now I’m restarting my life. I’m 44 now.
“As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to surge upon me, there’s one thing that I think about: Continuing to love one woman.”
The candidates have a number of set conditions:
- Single women aged 20-years or over
- Bright personality and always positive
- Interested in going into space and able to participate in the preparation for it
- Want to enjoy life to the fullest
- Be someone who wishes for world peace
Maezawa said, “I started to think that this was a good chance to seriously face up to the idea of “continuing to love one woman” which I’d only really had a hazy image about.
“I made my decision and finally decided to go on the program.I want to find a “life partner”. With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space
