Steve Aoki Is Flying Across the Moon On SpaceX’s First Civilian Lunar Mission –

Steve Aoki needs to crater to each whim.

The DJ has been revealed as one in every of eight individuals chosen by Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa to hitch him on a industrial area flight across the moon. The journey, organized by Elon Musk’s SpaceX and dubbed “Pricey Moon,” is deliberate for 2023.

“Life is loopy,” Aoki stated in a clip recorded to seize his response to the information. “I’m going to go to the… moon!”

In line with Maezawa, a “area fanatic” and on-line trend retail mogul, the mission marks the world’s first-ever civilian lunar orbital mission. He’ll be footing the invoice for the ten individuals he picked—together with two backup crew members—who have been reportedly chosen from a pool of 1 million candidates. On the time of writing, Maezawa has a web price of $1.7 billion, per Forbes.
