Japanese businessman Yusaku Maezawa photographed the ISS flying over the Caribbean Sea and fired the first NFT directly from the ship, calling the photo “Rendezvous.”
Japanese Yusaku Maezawa, founder of online fashion store Zozotown, made an NFT from a photograph of Earth taken during his flight to the ISS.

“I turned my first photo from space into an NFT and named it Rendezvous. This could be the first NFT built in space, ”he wrote.
The photo was taken aboard the Russian spacecraft Soyuz MS-20 as it docked with the International Space Station (ISS). Photo taken with iPhone 12 Pro Max. It shows the ISS flying over the islands of the Caribbean Sea. Maezawa has created other NFTs with video filmed inside the Soyuz spacecraft.
“Rendezvous” was hosted by Art Today, an affiliate of the Maezawa brand. The company will launch the Earth from Space project and a platform for creating NFTs from photos and videos.
