When last we saw Yusaku Maezawa, he was giving away $9 million in a "serious social experiment," and making record-setting tweets. Now, he's just a simple Japanese billionaire looking for a love that he wants to take literally out of this world. As Reuters reports, the man selected as the first private passenger on a SpaceX flight is looking for a little female companionship for the 2023 adventure. "I want to find a ‘life partner’. With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space," he writes on a website set up to support his quest. Applicants must be female and over age 20; applications are due by Friday and Maezawa will make his choice by the end of March. Just don't expect a private journey around the moon: A documentary about the experience, called Full Moon Lovers, is set to stream on AbemaTV. (More Yusaku Maezawa stories.)
