日本时装界巨头将成为SpaceX第一位私人太空乘客

由伊隆·马斯克创建的太空探索技术公司官周一晚间公布了其首位私家乘客,即日本在线服装零售商Zoho的创始人及首席执行官前泽友作。

这一消息是星期一晚间在SpaceX公司位于加利福尼亚州洛杉矶郊区霍桑市的总部和工厂举行的一次活动中宣布的。

前泽友作将于2023年计划乘坐SpaceX未来将推出的大猎鹰火箭太空船进行一次环绕月球的旅行。这位现年42岁的亿万富翁还表示,将邀请6到8位艺术家与他一起进行这次月球之旅。

这次太空旅行的付费金额没有公开,但马斯克表示,前泽友作已经支付了大笔预定金,这对开发太空船的成本带来实际帮助。

SpaceX已经以其成本较低且可重复使用的猎鹰 9号火箭颠覆了航天工业。 该公司已经成功发射了50多次猎鹰火箭,并获得了包括与美国国家航空航天局和美国国防部的数十亿美元的合同。

SpaceX's First Private Passenger is Japanese Fashion Magnate Maezawa

SpaceX, Elon Musk's space transportation company, on Monday named its first private passenger as Japanese businessman Yusaku Maezawa, the founder and chief executive of online fashion retailer Zozo.

Maezawa's identity was revealed at an event on Monday evening at the company's headquarters and rocket factory in the Los Angeles suburb of Hawthorne.

Maezawa will take a trip around the moon planned for 2023 aboard SpaceX's forthcoming Big Falcon Rocket spaceship. The 42-year-old billionaire said he would invite six to eight artists to join him on the lunar orbit mission.

The amount he is paying for the trip was not disclosed, however, Musk said the businessman outlaid a significant deposit and will have a material impact on the cost of developing the BFR.

SpaceX has already upended the space industry with its relatively low-cost reusable Falcon 9 rockets. The company has completed more than 50 successful Falcon launches and snagged billions of dollars' worth of contracts, including deals with NASA and the U.S. Department of Defense.
