Yusuka Maezawa, a billionaire from Japan, has launched an online wanted advertisement for a girlfriend who is willing to fly around the Moon with him on a SpaceX rocket.
Maezawa recently announced his break-up with a Japanese actress.
He is now accepting applications from single women who are aged 20 or over, particularly the ones that are looking to enjoy life to the fullest.
The matchmaking exercise is being turned into a TV show for a web streaming service.
In a statement he released in the online advertisement, Maezawa said, “I have lived exactly as I’ve wanted to until now.”
He added, “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.”
Maezawa has also made a pitch on his Twitter account.
In a tweet he sent out, Maezawa said, “Why not be the ‘first woman’ to travel to the moon?”
If you’re a woman trying to apply for the position, you need to hurry up as the deadly to apply is on January 17, 2020.
He will make the final selection by the end of March this year.
Maezawa will be going on dates with the applicants.
Maezawa is the former CEO of Zozo, an online fashion company that was sold to Yahoo last year.
The billionaire is known for buying expensive art and a lavish lifestyle.
Maezawa is scheduled to make a lunar trip in 2023 or later in the first private trip of SpaceX to the Moon.
Maezawa is set to become the first private passenger in one of the most anticipated lunar trips of all time.
Maezawa also plans to take around half a dozen artists with him on the trip, which will take them around the moon.
They will not land on the moon.
