The Axiom Space project is due to be ready by 2020 and will cost £ 41 million per ticket

If you think 2018 is the year of flying cars and dream of it since the futuristic episodes of The Jetsons, wait a little bit longer. In 2020 with the Axiom Space project you can go to space - a lot better, right? Unless you have £ 41 million to pay for the ticket and make the 10-day trip to the Axiom space station connected to the ISS. The space tourism program will include a 15-week training led by astronauts to make everything happen in the best way. And no one more conducive to drawing the interiors than the master of technology Philippe Starck.

The first commercial space station will have crew quarters, meal area and common environment for people to interact with. "My vision for the housing module at Axiom Station is a comfortable egg that is inviting with soft walls and a design perfectly in tune with the values ​​and movements of the human body at zero gravity," he commented in an official announcement.





According to the announcement made by Axiom, the project was also designed to improve life in orbit and offer passengers a certain level of luxury. Which was translated into large rectangular windows covered with gold and rounded corners to see the Earth framed from afar. The private cabins also have suede-lined walls dotted with LED lights that change color according to the time and distance between the ship and Earth. "Just like all the shades of day and night lights and colors, this "egg" will bring mood and rhythm to its osmotic inhabitant," said Starck.














About Axiom Space

A growing coalition of nations, corporations and individuals are taking on the challenges of lunar exploration, Mars settlement and deep Space exploration. At the same time, the International Space Station (ISS) is scheduled to be retired in 2024 resulting in the loss of the low Earth orbit services, critical exploration infrastructure, and Earth-focused research provided by ISS for almost two decades.

Axiom’s international commercial space station will stimulate growth of the low Earth orbit (LEO) user community by providing additional and expanded services at ISS and allowing a seamless transition to the Axiom station when ISS is retired. This Axiom Space commercial initiative will allow NASA to realize their mandate to transition the multibillion-dollar LEO market to the private sector.
