Axiom Space: Building the off-Earth economy

Axiom Space wants to take the off-Earth economy to new heights.

The Houston-based company, which was founded in 2016, aims to build and operate its own space station in low Earth orbit (LEO) in the coming years. And Axiom has inked deals with SpaceX to fly multiple tourist missions to the International Space Station (ISS), the first of which is set to launch in late February 2022.
