We wrote today that Axiom Space presented a prototype suit for the lunar mission Artemis III, in which astronauts will land on the moon for the first time since 1972. It is also known that the space suits themselves will not return to earth. Another Axiom-related news is that the US company will poison a third group of tourists to the International Space Station (ISS).
What is known
Axiom Space has signed a contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for the third tourist mission to the ISS. They are expected to be able to travel to the station at the end of 2023, but the exact date has not yet been made public. However, it is known that the cruise will take place no earlier than November.
As part of the Ax-3 commercial mission, four people will go to the ISS. They will spend two weeks at the station, during which they will be able to interact with the ISS crew and take part in experiments.
Axiom Space has yet to select four crew members for the third mission, along with two members who will remain in reserve. It is also worth recalling that the Ax-2 mission will take place before the end of spring. Axiom first sent tourists to the ISS in 2022. Then they paid $55 million for the “ticket”.
