Axiom Space is a Houston-based company established in January 2015 that aims to build the world's first commercial space station. Its founder, CEO and President is Michael T. Suffredini, ten-year manager of the International Space Station (ISS) at Johnson Space Center.[1][2][3] The company plans to launch and begin linking its modules with the ISS in 2019.[4]

Upon retirement of the ISS, the Axiom module will be joined by additional elements that together will function as the Axiom International Commercial Space Station. Axiom plans to conduct astronaut training for commercial astronauts, to host governments and commercial partners, as well as space tourists.[1]
