Work is underway to orbit the world’s first private, international commercial space station, a complex that would serve a global community of sovereign and private astronauts.

The Axiom International Commercial Space Station is being pursued to enlarge the landscape of low Earth orbit, to create what they view as a “historic shift” in human spaceflight.

The Axiom International Commercial Space Station is intended to serve as a complex for astronauts, research and manufacturing missions. It can also become a base for trial-running deep space systems.

By making the microgravity of space available to nations, organizations and individuals, living and working in Earth orbit can become commonplace, Axiom believes, to not only cater to markets here on Earth but also support deep space exploration.
