NASA has been back in the news with the announcement that a return trip to the moon is in the works for 2024. And this means that Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa is back in the news with HIS announcement that he wants to bankroll 6-8 artists to go with him on a SpaceX flight affectionately named “Dear Moon”. He says that taking artists to space would allow them to “communicate their experiences to the masses in new ways”.
Of course, this project is just in the offing and we’ll have to see if it comes to fruition by 2024.
Would you want to travel to the moon? Or Mars? Or beyond?
