Axiom Space central as NASA outlines the near and far future of the space station
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.
