 Saturday, October 15, 2022 


The first space tourist of the world, only this time, wants to go back, he’s signed up for a spin around the moon on board with Elon Musk’s Starship. It’s an opportunity to relive the joy of his journey to the space for Dennis Tito, an 82 year old gentleman. As now that he’s retired with huge amount of time on his hands. He is not interested in getting inside on a 10-minute flight to experience the edge of space or repeating what he did 21 years back.

He said that he has been there and done that. His weeklong moonshot, the date to be determined and years in the coming days, will bring him within 125 miles of the lunar far side. His wife, Akiko will accompany him and 10 others who are interested to shell out that huge amount of money to enjoy the ride. How much he is exactly shelling out won’t be disclosed by Tito; his Russian station flight cost $20 million.

For the Starship, the couple knows that a lot of testing and development is still ahead. Starship is a shiny, bullet-shaped behemoth that’s not yet has been to the space. Tito said that they have to stay healthy for the time the company takes to complete this vehicle. He said that he might be sitting in a rocking chair; not attempting any good exercise, if he didn’t intended to join this mission.
