The Axiom Ax-1, the first fully commercial spaceflight to the International Space Station (ISS), took off on Friday with the first all-private astronaut team to ever fly to the orbiting outpost.

Axiom’s four-man team lifted from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, riding atop a Falcon 9 rocket furnished and flown by Elon Musk’s commercial space launch venture SpaceX.

The quartet is led by retired NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria. He’ll be joined by three paying customers: Larry Connor, a real estate and technology entrepreneur and aerobatics aviator from Ohio, who has been designated mission pilot. Investor-philanthropist and former Israeli fighter pilot Eytan Stibbe, and Canadian businessman and philanthropist Mark Pathy, round out the crew and will both serve as mission specialists.

The launch is being hailed by NASA, Axiom Space – the company behind the launch, and other industry players as a turning point in the latest expansion of commercial space ventures collectively referred to by insiders as the low-Earth orbit economy.

  1. Obama in 2011 cancelled our Human Flight capability into space by the USA, and allowed NASA to make agreements with Russia worth 100's of millions to fly our people up to the ISS, shameful…also in 2014 Russia invaded Ukraine, took over the area of Crimean – all under Obama and VP Joe Biden – seems that good old Democrats are always helping out Russia yet try to claim Russia Russia Russia as a Republican issue, such as when Trump was President, it was great to see while Trump was President the US launched from our soil Humans, again, US Space X flight on May 20 – 2020….Now Russia back in Ukraine trying to take the whole country all under Biden….crazy, hope he does not cancel the US Space Program and put Hunter in charge…
    Great work Space X / Elon on continued success with NASA, and our USA Space Program – keep rolling….hope Biden does support you…..supports Flacon 9 and Dragon that work, and the new Starship, leaps ahead of Government Owned SLS which has been delayed . delayed…good thing we are not relying on this to get Humans to SLS or higher / farther….NASA focus, put your money towards proven tech – Space X…..
