"Axiom has signed a contract with Space X for a flight with the Crew Dragon, which will transport a commander trained in a professional manner by Axiom and three astronauts private to and from the international space Station. The mission, scheduled for the second part of 2021, will allow the crew to live aboard the Iss, and experience microgravity for at least eight days, and the view of Earth that can be appreciated fully only by the great, the venerable, the station," read the release published by Axiom on its website. The private space recently, a high agreement was signed by the companion in space, with Elon Musk with another company, Space Adventures, a 'tour operator' space, promises to individuals around the Earth to admire it from the top, also very high in the altitude from the Iss. Axiom space offers a stay in the orbiting laboratory together with professionals astronauts. An opportunity for billionaires, of course, but also for private companies that are attacking the market (and in the future, the expectation is that they will become the actors, to the side of space agencies).
Not only space tourists, then, the Axiom speaks of "astronauts private", and plans to provide two flights a year, taking responsibility for the training and all the equipment necessary. According to Gwynne Shotwell, president and Chief operating officer of SpaceX, "thanks to Axiom and the support provided to them by Nasa, the missions with private crew will have unprecedented access to the international space Station, fostering the commercialization of space and the entry into a new era of space exploration." Axiom and Nasa In January, Nasa announced that at least one module built from the Axiom will be part of the international space Station. A new "segment", that you will add to those american and european and the Russian one, and that will take shape starting from 2024. If the business of the commercial flights with astronauts private will take root, will be perhaps these are the environments that the "space tourists" of the future will live in it. In the plans of the Axiom, also, these modules, a time that the Iss will end its operating life, will form the core of the first private space station. Private on board The first "package" of flight and overnight stay in the orbit of the Axiom is expected then to 20 years from when the first "space tourist", has arrived in orbit, on the international space Station. It was 2001, and american businessman Dennis Tito paid out 20 million dollars for this opportunity, supplied just by Space Adventures. Since then, six other individuals have visited the Iss. But in two decades, the vision of space tourism is all grown up. And the companies that work there and are growing. In addition to SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, promises, already this year, the suborbital flights to experience the microgravity floating for a few minutes in weightlessness aboard the Space ship two.
another space company in the running for this market is the Blue Origin founded by Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos. The company develops rockets and capsule (the New Jack) and is working with Nasa to design lunar lander in anticipation of the upcoming missions on our satellite.
