Ever wanted to fly around the moon on a private starship spacecraft? Well, two lucky and extraordinary photographers have joined Yusaku Maezawa's crew in a lunar tourism mission that will fly a single circumlunar trajectory around the Moon!

The dearMoon project has been in development since 2018, expected to finally launch as early as next year, and will see Maezawa accompanied by eight other crew members being launched into space on a six-day artist mission.
