A Japanese billionaire will be the first tourist to fly around the moon, and he wants to take artists from around the world with him. When they come back to Earth, he wants them to create masterpieces that ‘will inspire the dreamer in all of us’.

SpaceX will take him to the moon in its BFR spaceship. The company is planning the trip for 2023, and it is going to be the first lunar trip since 1972.

Difficult words: masterpiece (an amazing work of art), inspire (give people ideas and make them feel emotions), lunar (moon).
