Japanese billionaire canceled his Moon trip with SpaceX! “It has become impracticable”

Call from Biden to Netanyahu for an agreement for Gaza

In the statement on the website of the “dearMoon” Project financed by billionaire Maezawa, the status of the special Moon trip was updated.

It was reported that the trip, which was previously announced to take place by the end of 2023, but whose fate was not announced until now, “has become unfeasible”.

The statement said, “Arrangements were being made with SpaceX to achieve the launch by the end of 2023. Unfortunately, the launch in 2023 was not possible.” It was said.

It was noted that Maezawa took the decision to cancel inevitably and with great sadness, and said, “We sincerely thank everyone who supported the project and looked forward to this effort, and we apologize for the outcome.” The expression was used.

No details were shared regarding the reason for the cancellation of the project.


In Maezawa’s statement in December 2022, it was announced that famous names from the world of art, film and sports from different countries would participate in the trip.

The Japanese billionaire had stated that he would bear the expenses of the trip, which is expected to take place in 2023 with the American space shuttle manufacturer SpaceX rocket.

48-year-old entrepreneur and collector billionaire Maezawa achieved the title of “the first Japanese civilian to go to the International Space Station (ISS)” with his trip in 2021.

It is known that Maezawa, who was previously a “punk rock” drummer, founded the “Start Today” record sales company for a while and later entered the fashion world. (AA)This content was published by Enes Çırtlık
