After spending twelve days on the International Space Station, a tourist crew that included a Japanese fashion mogul, his producer and a Russian Cosmonaut made it safely back to Earth.
At 9:13 am, three hours after being undocked from the ISS by the Russian Soyuz capsule transporting the trio, it made a soft landing on the Kazakhstani steppe.
Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa, his producer Yozo Hirano, and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin experienced a standard 4g acceleration load during the routine landing, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said. It was Maezawa’s third space mission.
Spacefarers reported feeling fine. Crew members were rescued by all-terrain vehicles, as it was impossible to use helicopters due to low clouds.
Japan’s citizens were the first to pay their own travel expenses and visit the International Space Station.
Maezawa stated to AP last week in an interview that he was paying for orbit. “pretty much”He was awarded $80million for his travels. He complained to his 46-year old self about “a little bit of motion sickness”It was difficult to sleep when in orbit. However, it was still an “amazing experience.”
The founder of Zozotown, Japan’s largest online fashion shopping platform, Maezawa had completed more than 100 tasks in space during the last 12 days, including trying to play table tennis and golf.
Forbes puts the net worth of this billionaire at $1.9 billion. The space entrepreneur has always been interested in space. He also booked a seat on Elon Musk’s Starship, which is set to fly by the Moon in 2023.
In October, Russian actress Yulia Peresild and filmmaker Klim Shipenko flew to the ISS to shoot footage for ‘The Challenge,’ the first-ever feature film made in space, as part of a collaboration between Roscosmos and country’s television Channel 1.
