The Axiom Space Station (AxStation) is home base for professional astronauts and private explorers. It is the microgravity laboratory where educators, scientists and researchers conduct life-improving research. It is the in-space industrial park for manufacturing products to be used on the ground and in orbit. It is the ultimate proving ground to mature critical space systems necessary for the exploration and colonization of space. Our vision at Axiom Space is to make living and working in space commonplace as a means to sustained deep space exploration and to improve the quality of life here on Earth.
Planning to launch the first segment of a new commercial space station in just three years, and it will double as an out-of-this-world hotel. The plan is to attach a crew module to the International Space Station by 2024 and then expand from there to create at least two other modules, including a laboratory/manufacturing facility and a panoramic observatory. The company intends to leave all three modules attached to the ISS until it’s retire. The $2 billion project, called “AxStation,” could be built as soon as 2028.
