    Yusaku Maezawa, a Japanese billionaire said he could barely hold in his excitement a day ahead of the blasting off to the International Space Station. The trip will act as a prelude to a more ambitious trip around the moon with SpaceX planned in 2023. Maezawa is a 46-year-old fashion magnate and art collector who has been training at a space centre outside Moscow in recent months. 

    He is set to become the first space tourist to travel to the ISS in more than a decade.  Maezawa will travel aboard a Soyuz spacecraft, which will be launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Wednesday. He will be accompanied by his assistant Yozo Hirano, who will be documenting the journey, as well as Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin. 

    12- days before the trip, Maezawa said from Baikonur “I’m excited. I feel like an elementary school student about to go on an outing,… I didn’t think I would be able to go to space. I used to like the starry sky and heavenly bodies. I feel fortunate to have this opportunity and to finally fulfill my dream.”
