CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida — SpaceX will launch a former NASA astronaut and three paying customers on a journey to the International Space Station. That mission, called Ax-1, lifts off today (April 8)!

Today’s launch, which comes a couple of days later than expected after a delay of NASA’s Artemis 1 “wet dress rehearsal,” will kick off the first crewed mission organized by Texas-based company Axiom Space. Ax-1 will launch on a 10-day mission to the space station commanded by former NASA astronaut Michael López-Alegría. The mission will also fly paying passengers Larry Connor, Mark Pathy and Eytan Stibbe.
