Florida. The world’s first space tourist has decided to go on another adventure. This time he’s ready to roam the moon with Elon Musk’s Starship program. Dennis Tito, 82, who made a short trip to the International Space Station 21 years ago. Now he is not interested in flying to the space station. Now he wants to travel to the moon. He will not be alone on this journey. With him, 10 people in total including his wife are ready to pay a substantial sum for a trip to the Moon.
But Tito has learned that he still has plenty of tests left for the Starship, according to a report from India Today. Tito told The Associated Press that without this mission, I wouldn’t have had a good exercise. I would have been sitting on a rocking chair.

Tito started space tourism in 2001. He became the first to pay for space in his own way and oppose NASA in the process. The US space agency did not want anyone visiting the station during the station’s construction. But the Russian space agency needed the money and, with the help of the American company Space Adventures, launched a series of wealthy customers to visit the station in the 2000s.
Tito said the contract was signed between him and SpaceX in August 2021. It was announced on Wednesday. This includes the ability to fly within five years from the current time. Tito will then be 87 years old and if his health deteriorates during this period, he will be released from this contract.
We know that John Glenn was the first American to orbit the Earth and he still holds the record for the oldest astronaut. Tito said he was about to shatter preconceived notions of age. He said he (John Glenn) was only 77. He was just a young man. I will be maybe 10 years older than him.
