Axiom Space, Inc.

Axiom Space is a Houston, Texas, based company founded in 2016. It has contracted with NASA to build modules for the International Space Station (ISS). When the ISS reaches end of life and is deorbited, these modules will be detached and be used to form a new commercial space station, Axiom Station. The first module is already in the construction phase and is anticipated to be launched in late 2024.

Axiom also flies privately funded missions to the ISS for research and development. Axiom missions are contracted out to SpaceX.
