    This guy has put down an estimated $250m as an investment in SpaceX's new rocket. In return, he will invite 6-8 artists for an inspirational round-the-moon trip. Spaceflight not for science, for art.

    Saul Goodman It's all good, man

    Can we vote on which ones get sent, and which ones we hope don't come back?

    Saw this earlier, found myself surprisingly unsteamed up with fury tbh

    Wouldn't mind if Elon Musk went, never to return, though

    There's so many I'd like to send, but I would want to tinker with the co-ordinates a little bit

    If you'd told the Apollo 17 astronauts in 1972 that the next people to leave low Earth orbit would be a Japanese fashion tycoon and half-a-dozen selected artists 51 years later, I think they'd be more than a little curious about what kind of wacky direction the future was going to go in.
