Ax-2: The second private mission to the International Space Station

The Axiom Mission 2 (Ax-2) astronauts are part of the latest class of space pioneers and Axiom Space’s next crew to expand access to the International Space Station (ISS) and low-Earth orbit.

Aboard the orbiting laboratory, the four-person, multinational crew will conduct extensive research, investigate novel technologies, and engage with audiences around the world as champions of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.

Their efforts will continue to lay the groundwork and establish the key capabilities needed to build out and operate Axiom Station, the world’s first commercial space station.
