Dennis Tito, an entrepreneur, and his wife, Akiko, bought tickets for a private trip on SpaceX’s Starship rocket. This is the third time Elon Musk’s company has announced a trip like this.
Tito, who is 82 and famous for being the first private space tourist when he flew with Russia to the International Space Station in 2001, bought two seats on a SpaceX mission that would take a Starship to the moon and back for a week.
Tito said at a press conference on Wednesday, “I’ve wanted to go to the moon ever since my first trip to space.”
Akiko is 57 years old and a pilot and real estate investor. In 2020, she married Dennis Tito. They should be the first married couple to fly around the moon as a team.
Unlike the other two private Starship flights that had already been announced, the first one was bought by billionaire Jared Isaacman and the second by billionaire Yusaku Maezawa. Tito and his wife did not buy the whole flight, but rather two seats. He said that means 10 more people can sign up for the flight to the moon.
