Axiom-1 mission all-private crew to make and carry history on space station

Artifacts from the first heavier-than-air powered flying machine, the first spacecraft to carry humans to land on the moon and the first Israeli to fly in space are headed into orbit with the first private crew to visit the International Space Station.

The Axiom Mission-1 (Ax-1), organized by Houston-based Axiom Space, is set to launch with three private individuals and the first former NASA astronaut to revisit the space station on a 10-day, history-making and history-carrying flight (opens in new tab). Lifting off on a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft lofted by a Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the Ax-1 mission is the first to fly under NASA’s directive to establish a low Earth orbit economy capable of sustaining commercial outposts.
