Elon Musk’s company SpaceX has unveiled the first private passenger it plans to fly around the Moon.

Japanese billionaire and online fashion tycoon Yusaku Maezawa, 42, announced: “I choose to go to the Moon.”

The mission is planned for 2023 but it is reliant on a rocket that has not been built yet, and Mr Musk cautioned: “It’s not 100% certain we can bring this to flight.”

The announcement was made at SpaceX’s headquarters in California.
