I prepared a little video for you all so you can learn a bit of what it's been like for me as I prepare myself to go to the moon as a #dearMoonCrew member! -



Edit to add: Tim knew he was selected over a year ago! The crew all went to watch MZ's launch to the ISS last December (see above video)

MEET THE DEARMOON CREW

Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa announced today ten crewmembers, including two backups, who will join him on the dearMoon mission. The dearMoon crew will be the first humans Starship will launch, fly around the Moon, and safely return to Earth. Over the course of their weeklong journey, this crew of artists, content creators, and athletes from all around the world will also travel within 200 km of the lunar surface.

More than one million people in 249 countries and regions around the world applied to fly on Starship as part of the dearMoon mission. This flight is an important step toward enabling access for people who dream of traveling to space. In sharing their experiences flying around the Moon, this crew will inspire everyone back home on Earth, and we look forward to flying them.

We were planning for our lunar orbital mission "dearMoon" to take place in 2023, but seems like it will take a little longer.
Were not sure when the flight will be, but we will give you all an update once we know more.

Announcement Regarding The dearMoon Project

In 2018, Yusaku Maezawa and Space announced the dearMoon project, a spaceflight mission around the Moon aboard Space's Starship transportation system.

Throughout the week-long journey, the multinational crew of artists, content creators, and athletes who have been selected for this mission will be the first to fly around the Moon aboard Starship, travel within 200 km of the lunar surface, and safely return to Earth.

Initially targeted to liftoff in late 2023, the launch will not take place this year due to the on-going development of Starship.

The vehicle's first flight test in April 2023 provided numerous lessons learned that are directly contributing to upgrades being made to improve the probability of success on future Starship flights.

The upcoming second integrated flight test will inform development and the dearMoon mission timeline, and we will share an update once we know more.
