Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa – SpaceX’s first buyer to fly to the Moon has announced a strange campaign to find a “female partner” flying around the Moon with him. In particular, Maezawa’s website promoting the campaign made it clear that he was not only looking for a friend but also a number of other people cooperating with him on his journey into space.
“Maezawa has long dreamed of going into space. He wants to visit such special places with a special person,” the announcement on the website reads. This is a serious competition called “Full Moon Lovers” broadcast on AbemaTV.
Those who can participate in the contest are required to be female, single over the age of 20, with good-looking appearance, want to enjoy life to the fullest, love peace and enjoy exploring the universe.
Maezawa and his new companion will fly to the Moon with SpaceX’s new generation Starship rocket – the company has the ambition to send people to deep-space locations such as the Moon and even Mars.

In September 2018, SpaceX revealed that Maezawa made a huge deposit to become the first private customer to fly on Starship when it was completed and ready for the journey. This journey will send Maezawa around the Moon without landing and then bring him back to Earth. SpaceX did not disclose the amount the Japanese billionaire paid, but CEO Elon Musk said it was enough to pay part of the device’s manufacturing process.
In the statement, Maezawa said he also paid for a few more seats on Starship to bring six to eight artists with him on the trip. “These artists will be required to create something after returning to Earth and those works will inspire daydreamers about an extraterrestrial life.”
Maezawa is the founder of Japan’s largest retailer Zozotown and is said to hold $ 2 billion in fortune. He was also a massive collector when he spent $ 110.5 million on a painting by Jean-Michael Basquiat in 2017. Just last week, he broke the record with retweets when he announced he would split 1. million yen for a group of 1,000 people to randomly share his tweet about the contest. This message has been retweeted over 4 million times.
The 44-year-old billionaire said on his website that after two decades of running the company, he now wants to share his life with another person. “Loneliness and emptiness are gradually rising in me, and I start to think of one thing: Continue to love one more woman. Maezawa hopes he will find a true partner through life.” this exam.
The deadline for submission of applications for this contest is January 17 and the “final decision” will be made at the end of March.
