In a webcast, SpaceX announced that Yusaku Maezawa will be the first human to leave the Earth's orbit in decades, if everything goes according to plan. Elon Musk intends to send the billionaire Japanese art curator, along with several of his friends, around the moon and back using SpaceX's BFR. Current renderings suggest the Big Falcon Rocket will tower 387 feet above the ground and is capable of throwing 220,000lb into orbit, surpassing the Saturn V as the biggest launch vehicle ever. The launch window is sometime in 2023, though even Musk admits that could change. Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972.
