Online meeting with Elon @elonmusk is done. I can make a major announcement about space around the noon of December 8, PST. It's another new announcement on the anniversary of exactly one year since the day I went to ISS last year.— Yusaku Maezawa (MZ) (@yousuckMZ) December 5, 2022
Maezawa, a founder of online fashion site Zozo Inc, returned to Earth on Dec. 20, 2021 after a 12-day journey into space, ending a practice run for his planned trip around the moon with Elon Musk’s SpaceX in 2023.
