Following the successful launch and docking of SpaceX's Crew Dragon on its Demo-2 mission, all eyes turned to the possibilities for private space travel it opened. A defining element of these "what's next" focuses has been Axiom Space, which plans to fly its first private crew in late 2021.


In his exploration of what Demo-2 really means, CNBC's Michael Sheetz devoted significant attention to Axiom's role in the new era of human spaceflight.

The New York Times' coverage of the success and implications of SpaceX and NASA's Demo-2 crewed launch to the International Space Station included a look at what's next in a new era of human spaceflight. Namely, that Axiom Space has already made an agreement with SpaceX to fly the first Axiom crew to ISS -- the first fully private crew to ever undertake such a mission.

During a meeting of the NASA Advisory Council in May, current International Space Station program manager Kirk Shireman presented the near- and long-term future of the ISS. In the plans: an expansion of the station with commercial modules designed and developed by Axiom Space, which is led by Michael Suffreidni -- Shireman's predecessor as ISS PM.


In January, NASA selected Axiom's proposal to use the forward port of the Node 2 "Harmony" module to begin constructing the 'Axiom Segment' of ISS, which will later detach and operate as a free-flying private space station.
