Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa will be the first tourist to fly around the moon.

The fashion tycoon wants to take artists from around the world with him, so when they come back to Earth, they can create masterpieces that ‘will inspire the dreamer in all of us’.

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

Difficult words: tycoon (a powerful businessman), masterpiece (an amazing work of art), lunar (relating to the moon).
