We say, "I love you to the moon and back" when we really love someone. A Japanese billionaire will go to the moon with his love in 2023. But, he doesn't have one. Yusaku Maezawa, 44, will fly with the company SpaceX. He will be the first space tourist. He wants to, "visit such a special place with someone special," and not go alone.

Mr Maezawa made a TV show called "Full Moon Lovers". He said: "As feelings of loneliness...come to me, there's one thing that I think about - continuing to love one woman. I want to find a 'life partner'....I want to shout our love...from outer space." The woman must be over 20, single, positive, and be interested in space.
