This businessman is unbelieveably going to SPACE, just after 100 days of training!

Yusaku Maezawa (45), a businessman who has announced that he will be the first Japanese civilian astronaut to travel and stay at the ISS (International Space Station), completed about 100 days of training on the 16th. Passed the final exam at the Gagarin Astronaut Training Center. A moment of pride for all Japanese, and one of awe for us who admire its culture and life. 

Astronaut Alexander Misurkin, who is a passenger, and Yozo Hirano, who is an officer of Mr. Maezawa's affiliated company and shoots the entire space flight, also passed the final test. The three will launch the Soyuz spacecraft "MS-20" from Baikonur Cosmodrome (Kazakhstan) with the support of Space Adonchers (US Space Travel Company) and Roscosmos (Roscosmos).
