SpaceX Crew Dragon launch illustration (SpaceX) Axiom has signed an agreement with SpaceX for a Crew Dragon mission to the International Space Station. Axiom will fly three private astronauts, along with its own professional astronaut, to the ISS on the mission scheduled for no earlier than the second half of 2021. The 10-day mission will include eight days on the station and two in transit. Axiom says it expects to perform a series of such "precursor" missions to the station prior to the launch in late 2024 of a commercial module to add to the station, part of a long-term effort to develop its own free-flying commercial space station.
