Elon Musk wants to send lots of people on a trip around the Moon in an effort to make commercial space flight the norm. Obviously, travelling to space is no small feat and requires lots of money, more than most of us have, but that’s where Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa steps in. He plans to go on one of the first flights and would like his spaceflight companions to be from all over the world, and “from all kinds of backgrounds”. So, Maezawa will be giving away eight spots for free!
This free trip clearly won’t suit everyone: even though these are commercial flights, you would still need to meet a few basic requirements (fitness and mental strength are likely two of them), but all that information will still follow. For now, go ahead and pre-apply.
How to pre-apply:
- Visit the company’s website by clicking “Get This Offer (External Website)”.
- Enter your name, contact information and country.
- Add a photo of yourself (jpg, png, gif / up to 10MB).
- Note which of Maezawa’s social media accounts you follow.
- Agree to the terms and hit “Confirm” to pre-register.
- Everyone who pre-registers will receive an email about the selection process, so keep an eye on your inbox and good luck!
