Here we are talking about Dj Steve Aoki and K-pop Artist T.O.P Will Travel to the Moon With a Japanese Billionaire Using SpaceX. South Korean rapper T.O.P and DJ Steve Aoki are two of the eight musicians and performers who will travel with Japanese businessman Yusaku Maezawa on a private SpaceX mission around the moon as early as next year, according to a statement released on Friday.
Every seat on the trip, the first of its sort by the Elon Musk-owned company, has been purchased by Maezawa, a 47-year-old businessman also known as MZ. This comes after Maezawa’s 12-day journey to the International Space Station last year aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
In addition to T.O.P, also known as Choi Seung Hyun, a former member of the K-pop group Big Bang, and Aoki, a Japanese-American artist, the dear moon Project’s roster also includes American space YouTuber Tim Dodd and Indian actor Dev Joshi.

“I still find it hard to believe it. Even though I’ve known for a while, it hasn’t even sunk in yet, Dodd remarked in a video that was released following the revelation. Kaitlyn Farrington, an Olympic snowboarder, and Miyu, a dancer from Japan, will serve as backup crew for the journey, which has been planned for years.
In a video that was uploaded to his YouTube page, Maezawa said, “I hope each and everyone will grasp the responsibility that comes with leaving the Earth, traveling to the moon, and back.” Maezawa, who founded the Japanese fashion retailer Zozo, has a taste for social media theatrics and has offered cash prizes in the past in exchange for retweets.
He said of the participants, “They will gain a lot from this experience, and I hope they will use that to contribute to the planet, to humanity.” He tweeted about looking for a romantic companion to travel to the moon with him in 2020 before quitting the hunt a few weeks later.
Maezawa stated his desire to have “people from all kinds of backgrounds” travel with him around the moon in a March 2021 recruitment release. One million applicants, he claimed.
Three days of the eight-day Starship mission are spent orbiting the moon, passing within 125 miles of its surface. The flight was supposed to take off in 2023, but testing has been delayed.
