Love is a funny thing. You fall in love and feel over the moon. In these times, though, the entire idea of love and its very definition is revamped; in the case of Japanese billionaire Yusaka Maezawa love will happen to go to the moon, or so he intends. The plan is to go to the moon, and it just struck him he can’t go alone on this once-in-a-lifetime journey. He needs to be holding the hand of his life partner, who is currently nowhere in the picture. Maezawa plans to be a part of Elon Musk’s SpaceX’s maiden trip to the Moon. The 44-year-old is slated to become the first ‘tourist’ to travel onboard the Starship rocket. Whoever joins the billionaire in this celestial journey will become the ‘first woman to travel to the Moon.’ His slot is already booked for an undisclosed amount; the woman who joins him will be shown the moon (literally), and fame is another bonus that’s part of the package. If they do manage to find love somewhere under the big pile of money, then that’s going to be one hell of a ride.
The process begins with the 44-year old Richie Rich posting a message on his website accepting applications from “single women aged 20 or over” who want to enjoy life to the fullest. Be positive and have a bright personality. And obviously, someone who will gladly join him in outer space. Things will get really interesting as this matchmaking exercise is turned into a TV show for a web streaming service.
