Axiom Space News

Axiom Space, founded in 2016, is a private aerospace company based in Houston, Texas, that aims to build the world’s first commercial space station. The company’s vision involves not only constructing new modules to attach to the International Space Station (ISS) but eventually transitioning these modules to form a separate, fully commercial station as the ISS is decommissioned. Axiom Space plans to provide a platform for space tourism, scientific research, and manufacturing in microgravity, thereby expanding the commercial possibilities of space. The company has outlined plans for sending private astronauts to space, including training, transportation, and on-orbit experiences. Axiom Space’s initiatives are part of a broader move toward the commercialization of space activities, which also involves collaborations with various space agencies and private sector entities to further the infrastructure and economy in low Earth orbit.
