CEO Elon Musk hinted that it was someone from Japan, with the person's identity to be revealed in a presentation at the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

'In 2023, as the host, I would like to invite six to eight artists from around the world to join me on this mission to the moon, ' explained the businessman during a press conference.

Mr Maezawa is the founder of Japan's largest fashion retail website called Zozotown. He will be boarding SpaceX's Big Falcon Rocket or BFR which is still now under development.

In what will be the first visit by humans to the moon since Nasa's Apollo 17 landing in 1972, the company said that the flight represented "an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of travelling to space".

To make his incredible journey, he will be aboard SpaceX's next spaceship, Big Falcon Rocket (BFX), which remains to be built. Under the current design, the BFR will be 118 meters long, with a payload capacity of 1,100 cubic meters and 100 metric tonnes.

SpaceX's competitors are Blue Origin, the company of Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, and Virgin Galactic of entrepreneur Richard Branson.

Local resident Giannis Giannakopoulos told CNN that he first noticed the "veil of webs" earlier this week and took photos. It's not quite the World Wide Web - but the spiders of Aitoliko in Greece have made a good start.

The BFR will have seven Raptor engines, each capable of 200 tonnnes of thrust, according to Musk. In 2023, SpaceX plans to fly a Japanese billionaire and art collector along with his favorite artists on a trip around the moon and back.

Yusaku Maezawa has always sought to stand out. He eventually chose to leave the band to focus on his business, which turned into Start Today.

The tourism announcement comes as the company is racing to meet a tight deadline to start flying astronauts to and from the International Space Station aboard its workhorse Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft. "I choose to go to the moon with artists". Though he would not disclose the price he paid for the 2023 trip around the moon.

"Maybe we'll both be on it", Musk said with a smile. "He chose us. He is a very fearless person to do this".

"I did not want to have such a fantastic experience by myself", said Maezawa, wearing a blue sports jacket over a white T-shirt printed with a work by the late painter Jean-Michel Basquiat. He has so far sold about 23 billion yen ($205 million) worth of the company's shares.
