This is impressive news and a major boost for private space exploration. However, Axiom has not yet provided further details on this, only that the crew members are multinational and will be commanded by former NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria (@CommanderMLA).
Axiom Space is known mainly as a manufacturer of space modules for space stations and one of the companies that aspires to be the first owner and operator of a future private space station (see more information here (pt)).
Let's wait for more information about this release.
