Axiom Space wins NASA approval for construction of commercial space station on ISS

    Axiom Space    
Jan 27, 2020, 18:00 ET

 HOUSTON, Jan. 27, 2020  /PRNewswire/ -- The human dream of universal access to living and working in space has drawn one step closer.

On Monday the National Aeronautics and Space Administration selected Axiom Space as the winner of the NextSTEP-2 Appendix I solicitation, which sought to grant access to the International Space Station's Node 2 Forward port for a commercial space station that could ultimately serve as ISS' replacement.

Co-founded by stalwart space entrepreneur Dr. Kam Ghaffarian and former NASA ISS Program Manager Michael Suffredini, both of whom have in excess of 35 years of human spaceflight experience, Axiom plans to launch a node module, research & manufacturing facility, crew habitat, and large-windowed Earth observatory to form the "Axiom Segment" of the ISS. This new commercial platform will significantly increase the usable and habitable volume of the ISS, provide for novel avenues of research in areas such as isolation studies and Earth observation, and allow a gradual transfer of the innovative work being done on-station to prevent interruptions when the ISS is ultimately retired.

The company targets launch of the first module in the latter half of 2024.

"We appreciate the bold decision on the part of NASA to open up a commercial future in Low Earth Orbit," Suffredini said. "This selection is a recognition of the uniquely qualified nature of the Axiom team and our commercial plan to create and support a thriving, sustainable, and American-led LEO ecosystem.

"Axiom exists to provide the infrastructure in space for a variety of users to conduct research, discover new technologies, test systems for exploration of the Moon and Mars, manufacture superior products for use in orbit and on the ground, and ultimately improve life back on Earth. As we build on the legacy and foundation established by the ISS Program, we look forward to working with NASA and the ecosystem of current and future international partners on this seminal effort."

Central to the selection was the Axiom leadership team's extensive high-level expertise in human spaceflight management, space systems engineering and operations, utilization of microgravity, space finance, marketing, and law.

Ghaffarian founded Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies, which rose to become NASA's second-largest engineering services provider, training NASA's astronauts and operating the ISS. These functions are now carried on by KBR, which bought SGT in 2018 and joined the Axiom team as a subcontractor on the winning proposal.

"A commercial platform in Earth orbit is an opportunity to mark a shift in our society similar to that which astronauts undergo when they see the planet from above," Ghaffarian, Axiom's executive chairman, said. "Our goal is to advance the state of humanity and human knowledge. I am glad to see the Axiom team, with its advanced human spaceflight, engineering, and operations expertise, recognized for its potential to do just that and build off of ISS."

Team Axiom also includes Boeing, Thales Alenia Space Italy, Intuitive Machines, and Maxar Technologies.

Axiom was founded in 2016 with the purpose of expanding human civilization into Earth orbit. In addition to building and launching the Axiom Segment, the company will launch crewed flights to the ISS and later the ISS/Axiom complex at a rate of about two to three flights per year.  Shortly before ISS is retired, Axiom will launch its large power platform to provide the Axiom Segment power and cooling that ISS previously provided.

When the ISS reaches its decommissioning date, the Axiom Segment will detach and continue as a free-flying, internationally available commercial space station. This station will have been built at a fraction of the cost of ISS, the elimination of whose operating costs will enable NASA to dive headlong into a new era of exploration.

"There is a fantastically steep learning curve to human spaceflight," Suffredini said. "The collective experience at Axiom is quite far along it. Because we know firsthand what works and what doesn't in LEO, we are innovating in terms of design, engineering, and process while maintaining safety and dramatically lowering costs."

 About Axiom Space

Axiom Space was founded in 2016 to make life and work in orbit a reality as a means to sustained deep space exploration and improving life on Earth. While building and launching the Axiom Segment to one day form the world's first commercial space station, Axiom will provide access to the ISS today by launching crewed flights at a rate of about two to three flights per year.

 NASA Selects First Commercial Destination Module for International Space Station

NASA has selected   Axiom Space   of Houston to provide at least one habitable commercial module to be attached to the  International Space Station  as the agency continues to open the station for commercial use.
"NASA has once again recognized the hard work, talent, and experience of Houstonians as we expand the International Space Station and promote commercial opportunities in space," said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas. "I'm proud Axiom will continue to build upon Texas' legacy of leading the nation in human space exploration."

This selection is a significant step toward enabling the development of independent commercial destinations that meet NASA's long-terms needs in low-Earth orbit, beyond the life of the space station, and continue to foster the growth of a robust  low-Earth orbit economy .

"Today's announcement is an exciting and welcome step forward in the efforts to commercialize low-Earth orbit," said Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. "This partnership between NASA and Axiom Space - a Houston, Texas original - illustrates how critically important the International Space Station is, and will continue to be, for developing new technologies for low-Earth orbit and beyond, and for continuing America's leadership in space. Congratulations to Axiom Space on this exciting award - Houston is known as Space City for a reason, and I look forward to this great Space City company and NASA turning this announcement into reality."
The element will attach to the space station's Node 2 forward port to demonstrate its ability to provide products and services and begin the transition to a sustainable low-Earth orbit economy in which NASA is one of many customers. NASA and Axiom next will begin negotiations on the terms and price of a firm-fixed-price contract with a five-year base performance period and a two-year option.
"Congratulations to Axiom Space! This is not only a win for Texas, Johnson Space Center, and the International Space Station, it is also a great step forward for NASA as we move towards an increased commercial presence in low-Earth orbit," said Rep. Brian Babin of Texas. "I am proud to see this work coming to Space City - Houston, Texas - as the Lone Star State continues to lead in space exploration well into the future."

Developing commercial destinations in low-Earth orbit is one of  five elements  of NASA's plan to open the International Space Station to new commercial and marketing opportunities. The other elements of the five-point plan include efforts to make station and crew resources available for commercial use through a new commercial use and pricing policy; enable private astronaut missions to the station; seek out and pursue opportunities to stimulate long-term, sustainable demand for these services; and quantify NASA's long-term demand for activities in low-Earth orbit.

"Axiom's work to develop a commercial destination in space is a critical step for NASA to meet its long-term needs for astronaut training, scientific research, and technology demonstrations in low-Earth orbit," said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. "We are transforming the way NASA works with industry to benefit the global economy and advance space exploration. It is a similar partnership that this year will return the capability of American astronauts to launch to the space station on American rockets from American soil."
NASA selected Axiom from proposals submitted in response to a solicitation through  Appendix I  of NASA's Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships (NextSTEP) 2 Broad Agency Announcement, which offered private industry use of the station utilities and a port to attach one or more commercial elements to the orbiting laboratory.
Because commercial destinations are considered a key element of a robust economy in low-Earth orbit, NASA also plans to issue a final opportunity to partner with the agency in the development of a free-flying, independent commercial destination. Through these combined efforts to develop commercial destinations, NASA is set to meet its long-term needs in low-Earth orbit well beyond the life of the station.

The agency will continue to need low-Earth orbit microgravity research and testing to enable future missions to the Moon and Mars, including the arrival of the first woman and next man on the Moon with the Artemis III mission as part of the agency's Artemis lunar exploration plans.

2021 - ну теперь становится понятно про лишние места на американских и про посещение МКС



Who Will Build the First Commercial Space Station?
If everything goes according to plan, Houston-based Axiom Space may start sending people to space starting in 2021.
By Dianna Wray  10/28/2019 at 12:00am  Published in the November 2019 issue of Houstonia
By 2016 they had founded Axiom Space. And if everything goes according to plan, starting in 2021 they are going to be sending what they call "space participants" and professional foreign astronauts to the ISS for 10-day stays, who will orbit the planet alongside NASA astronauts, for $55 million per person. They're also aiming to attach their own module to a port on the ISS--the start of what will eventually become a freestanding commercial space station--if they win a contract to do so.
In June NASA announced that private companies could start flying non-astronauts to the ISS. The agency also opened the space station to for-profit ventures, even those without educational or research-driven components.

Если до вывода модулей, то непонятно, за что Аксиом будет брать деньги. Своих кораблей нет и не планируется, то есть лететь надо на Старлайнере или Кру Дрэгоне. Своего модуля нет, значит надо размещаться в американском сегменте, и использовать их оборудование. Зачем тому же Боингу или СпейсХ продавать места на кораблях через посредника такого?


С моим плохим английским не понял. НАСА выбрала - деньги давать будет компании на строительство и запуск модулей?

у меня ранее был другой вопрос - кто будет отвечать перед НАСА (а они перед другими) перед и во время нахождения на МКС. НАСА ведь имеет ограничения.

почему место в Союзе туристам продавало не РКК Энергия или Роскосмос напрямую, а через посредника?
Вот пишут 10 дней - Боингу и СпейсХ нужно взаимодействовать между собой и НАСА? а может SpaceX проще продать место, пускай другие занимаются этим, есть более прибыльные направления.

Из-за 55 млн, т.к тут некорректно
In a newsletter released in November, last year Axiom confirmed that they had signed a deal worth $55 million with a space tourist hopeful in January 2019 and were still working with more candidates for orbital missions.

Ниже без упоминаний производства в космосе, только про туристов private astronauts

1st Private Space Station Will Become an Off-Earth Manufacturing Hub
By Mike Wall June 05, 2017
Axiom's plan involves leveraging the ISS in a variety of ways, and then operating its successor. For example, the company aims to start launching space tourists on 10-day missions to the ISS in 2019. Training for such voyages should begin this year, Blachman said. (Such tourist flights will cost tens of millions of dollars per seat, he added.)

Axiom's station will begin taking shape in 2020, when the company begins launching its own modules to link up with the ISS. When the first two such pieces are aloft and attached, the Axiom outpost will be operational and capable of housing seven crewmembers, Blachman said.

The company plans to launch a half dozen or so additional pieces -- power and propulsion modules, for example -- through 2024. The total cost of construction, launch and assembly will likely be between $1.5 billion and $1.8 billion, Blachman said.

During this time, Axiom will continue supporting visitors. Some will be national (also known as "sovereign") astronauts on 60-day missions, while others will be tourists on their shorter jaunts. The company also expects to make money fr om advertising and sponsorships, Blachman said.


Want to Take a 10-Day Trip to the Space Station? It'll Cost You $55 Million
By Mike Wall June 14, 2018
You can now sign up for a 10-day mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS) -- if you've got $55 million to spare.

That's the price just announced by Axiom Space, a Houston-based company that's organizing expeditions to the ISS and working to build the first commercial space station. The $55 million covers the orbital stay, transportation to and from the ISS, and a 15-week astronaut-training program.

Axiom Space aims to launch its first customers in 2020, company representatives said.
Axiom Space is also developing its own station, the modules of which will launch toward, and link up with, the ISS. The Axiom station will be ready to accommodate paying passengers by 2022 if all goes according to plan, company representatives have said.

Adventurous travelers with $55 million to spare (and who are over 21 and have also passed a medical fitness exam) will enjoy 15 weeks of training to prep them for launch, then ten days of "living" in space...... The launches will be able to take place all year-round, and voyagers yearning for more can upgrade to a 60-day mission (for an extra $25 million).


3 jul. 2019
ISS: Open for business
Two weeks ago, NASA made a startling announcement: For the first time ever, it will "open" the International Space Station (ISS) to visits by "private astronauts." Beginning in 2020, the space agency will permit at most two private astronauts per year to visit ISS for up to 30 days at a time.

Importantly, though, at no point in its announcement does NASA actually use the term "tourist." Rather, the agency makes it clear it's opening ISS to use by non-NASA employees conducting "approved commercial and marketing activities" - especially activities connected to "NASA's mission," furthering the development of "a sustainable low-Earth orbit economy," or "requiring the unique microgravity environment to enable manufacturing, production or development of a commercial application."

In short, NASA is selling anything but a pleasure cruise. We're talking strictly business trips here.
Last year privately held Axiom Space began marketing a similar program, offering a 10-day visit aboard ISS for $55 million. (Axiom eventually hopes to build its own "space hotel," independent of ISS, for this service.)

But this is not what NASA is doing.

Covering costs
Unlike the visits organized by Space Adventures, the private astronaut missions sponsored by NASA will fly aboard U.S.-built spacecraft, most likely SpaceX's Crew Dragon and Boeing's CST-100 Starliner. And this is wh ere we get into the dollars and cents of the story.

According to RT, the cost of visiting ISS will be "over $50 million." But not all of this money will go to NASA - in fact, far from it. According to NASA, the ticket to get to ISS on a Boeing or SpaceX rocketship will cost $58 million. But that money will be paid to the operator of the spacecraft. NASA is only planning to charge about $35,000 per day to reimburse it for the cost of maintaining life support, as well as for food, air, and other supplies consumed while on board. All in, NASA will collect only a little more than $1 million per private astronaut, per 30-day visit.

The upshot for investors
So what will NASA's new ISS exploitation program accomplish? Two things. Firstly, because NASA currently envisions only sending up about four astronauts at a time on Crew Dragon (which can seat seven), any "extra" passengers carried along for the ride, and paying separately, should help to defray the cost of each crew transport mission - lowering NASA's total cost.

Second, and more important, NASA intends this program to gauge commercial interest in sending private astronauts to ISS. Now that this is a possibility, NASA wants to know how many companies might be willing to pay for it - and how much. This will become increasingly important as the agency decides such crucial questions as:

How long to keep ISS in service? Key ISS partner Russia has spoken several times about wanting to terminate its involvement in the space station, and if it does so NASA will be keenly interested in figuring out how to keep the station operational past 2024 without Russian's financial contributions.
Whether to allow private companies such as Axiom and Bigelow Aerospace to attach their own modules to ISS to house private tourists?
Is there sufficient commercial interest in space to justify authorizing private companies to set up their own space stations in orbit, separate from ISS? As the agency explains, "a robust low-Earth orbit economy will need multiple commercial destinations, and NASA is partnering with industry to pursue dual paths to that objective that either go through the space station or directly to a free-flying destination."
In short, far from profiting from the privatization of the International Space Station, NASA charging $1 million per "tourist" is really just a way of defraying its costs, while providing private companies the opportunity to do some market research on interest in commercializing Low Earth Orbit.

Far from complaining about the cost, investors should be thanking NASA for advancing the cause of space exploration, and colonization, on the cheap.

Просто из ленты новостей на их сайте, вначале про арифметику и 55, хотя странные расчеты и прочее, в том числе одно дело для НАСА, другое дело для туристов (по аналогии у Роскосмоса)
Why the first SpaceX astronaut launch marks a crucial leap for NASA's ambitions
Beyond the comparatively low price to build the spacecraft, Crew Dragon is also expected to be the most cost-effective spacecraft to carry astronauts. NASA awarded SpaceX with $2.4 billion for six operational missions. Dividing those up, each Crew Dragon launch costs about $400 million, with $220 million of that cost allotted to the four astronauts NASA expects to fly per mission -- or $55 million per astronaut.
Suffredini's Axiom is one such SpaceX client, as the two companies signed a deal in March to fly three privately paying space tourists to the ISS for a 10-day mission. The mission will be managed by Axiom and will utilize SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule in what is expected to be "the first-ever fully private" trip to the space station. Suffredini told CNBC that he's worked with Musk and SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell for many years and believes the Demo-2 launch is "really energizing to the company" as a whole.

"I think it's very moving for them, as a bunch of individuals working for the company, to say that 'nobody's done this before,'" Suffredini said.

Axiom's first flight to the space station is scheduled for October 2021. Until SpaceX's first crewed launch, Suffredini said Axiom has had "customers kind of sitting on the sidelines," waiting for SpaceX to begin launch astronauts. The milestone helps "our customers know that it's going to be real," Suffredini added. He said the three passengers for Axiom's first launch have been identified and that the company plans to announce the crew in the next month or so.

Additionally, Suffredini said Axiom is already talking to customers about the company's second and third flights, as "we do intend to fly about once every six months."

...In a newsletter released in November, last year Axiom confirmed that they had signed a deal worth $55 million with a space tourist hopeful in January 2019 and were still working with more candidates for orbital missions. Axiom plans to fly paying customers to the ISS two to three times a year...

From International Space Station modules todayto the world's first commercial space station tomorrow
Turin, June 24, 2020 - Thales Alenia Space, Joint Venture between Thales (67 %) and Leonardo (33 %) announced the signature of an ATP (Authorization To Proceed) with Axiom Space of Houston, Texas to initiate the development of two key pressurized elements dedicated to the world's first commercial space station.

In January, NASA selected Axiom's proposal to attach its space station modules to the International Space Station (ISS) starting from the second half of 2024, ultimately creating a new 'Axiom Segment' which will expand the usable and habitable volume of the ISS. When the ISS reaches its retirement date, the Axiom complex will detach and operate as a free-flying commercial space station. The Axiom Segment will be attached to the ISS Node 2 built by Thales Alenia Space.


Based on its past successful experience building modules for the International Space Station, Thales Alenia Space will be responsible for the design, development, assembly and test of the primary structure and the Micrometeoroid & Debris Protection System for the Axiom Node One (AxN1) and Habitation Module (AxH), the first two Axiom station elements to fly. Axiom will receive these elements at their facility in Houston for integration and outfitting of core systems and certification of flight prior to shipping to the launch facility.
Thales Alenia Space has supplied a significant part of the pressurized elements of the International Space Station, including state-of-the-art components such as Node 2, Node 3, Columbus (pressurized part) - European Laboratory, Multi-Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM), the Permanent Logistic Module (PPM) and Cupola, as well as the ATV and Cygnus cargo modules.

ЦитатаИзвестный астронавт NASA станет командиром экипажа частной миссии компании Axiom на борту Crew Dragon на МКС
На этой неделе стало известно, что бывший командир МКС, и известный астронавт NASA Майкл Лопес-Алегрия (Michael Lopez-Alegria) возвращается на орбиту в качестве командира корабля Crew Dragon для космического полёта компании Axiom, который запланирован на октябрь 2021 года.
Лопес-Алегрия вместе с тремя пассажирами на борту Crew Dragon отправится в 10-дневное космическое путешествие на МКС. На МКС экипаж миссии будет находиться в течение 8 дней. Axiom заявляет, что данный космический полёт также будет включать обучение, отработку логистики операций на орбите, разработку оборудования для жизнеобеспечения экипажа, сертификацию оборудования и операций и общее управление новой коммерческой миссией.
Axiom Space Inc. - это стартап из Хьюстона, штат Техас, основанный Майклом Саффредини (Michael Suffredini), который работал менеджером программы NASA по МКС с 2005 по 2015 год. Он отвечал за станцию от момента сборки до начала миссий по снабжению от частных компаний. В Axiom в основном работают бывшие сотрудники NASA, в том числе бывший директор NASA Чарльз Болден (Charles Bolden). Компания работает над коммерциализацией космоса, она стремится создать свою космическую станцию ​​на низкой околоземной орбите, чтобы продолжить работу после того, как NASA откажется от программы МКС, чтобы сосредоточиться на Луне.
Компания также предлагает космические полёты для туристов, чтобы испытать микрогравитацию и лицезреть удивительные виды на Землю с низкой околоземной орбиты.
В начале этого года Axiom объявила о заключении контракта со SpaceX по запуску четырёх человек на борту космического корабля Crew Dragon на МКС. И вот теперь мы знаем имя командира экипажа.
Лопес-Алегрия - бывший заслуженный военно-морской пилот и опытный астронавт NASA, за свою карьеру он был командиром трёх космических миссий. В NASA он был участником четырёх космических полётов и провёл в космосе в общей сложности 257 дней. Во время которых он совершил 10 выходов в открытый космос, проведя 67 часов и 40 минут за пределами станции.
Лопес-Алегрия покинул НАСА в марте 2012 года. С Axiom же он снова будет командиром, и станет отвечать за управление космическим кораблем Crew Dragon, обеспечивая безопасность всего экипажа, который пока остаётся загадкой.

Michael Lopez-Alegria:
-- В этот день, в 2006 году, я попрощался с друзьями и семьей перед своим заключительным путешествием на МКС... Скажите Боб и Даг [ред. - Боб Бенкен и Даг Хёрли, первые астронавты доставленные кораблём Crew Dragon на МКС), новые скафандры SpaceX удобнее(?)

То есть у меня впечатление, что здесь мы видим дублированное машинное преобразование солнечной энергии.
