A flight with SpaceX, which will be led by a former NASA astronaut, will deliver three super rich people from Ohio and Israel into space. The three of them paid $55 million each.
Axiom President Mike Suffredini said this was the first private flight to an international space station.
“This has never been done before,” said Suffredini, Wednesday (27/1/2021).
These three businessmen just want to enjoy their journey into space and Axiom provides the facility.
In this tour the team will spend eight days on the space station and two days traveling on the SpaceX Dragon which takes off from Cape Canaveral in Florida, United States.
Axion’s first customer, Larry Connor, is a real estate and technology entrepreneur in Dayton, Ohio. Then Canadian businessman Mark Pathy and Israeli businessman Eytan Stibbe.
Suffredini said the passengers would also carry out scientific research in orbit and develop knowledge in their country.
To board SpaceX, passengers must pass a medical test and receive 15 weeks of training. 77-year-old Connor is the second oldest person to enter space. After previously John Glenn left in 1998 at the age of 77 years.
