The First All-Private Astronaut Mission Launched This Morning!

The Axiom-1 (Ax-1) Crew launched successfully at 11:17 EDT this morning from the Kennedy Space Center. What makes this launch special is that Ax-1 is the first all private astronaut mission to go to the International Space Station!  The four-man crew includes Michael López-Alegría (the Ax-1 commander and a former NASA astronaut), Larry Connor (Ax-1 pilot), Eytan Stibbe (Ax-1 mission specialist), and Mark Pathy (Ax-1 mission specialist). The crew is scheduled to dock at 7:45 AM EDT which will be live streamed by both NASA and Axiom. We are truly taking steps into the future of space travel!
