The International Space Station is ready to welcome those astronauts who are ready to pay a heavy price for space trips.
NASA is requesting two new private astronaut missions to the ISS. Which can take off from Earth's low orbit by the end of 2023.
In April, NASA collaborated with Axiom Space Private Company to send a private crew to ISS. Where 4 crew members will live and work in a microgravity environment.
NASA has selected Axiom Space Company for its second private space mission. Which would be launched in SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft late in 2023.
NASA has mandated that the crew members of each private mission should not have more than four astronauts.
In the concept of any mission, the spacewalk done by this private astronaut mission will not be considered.
That the first spacewalk to be performed by a commercial crew could be performed by the all-private Polaris Dawn crew,
NASA has decided that the next ISS private mission will travel to orbit on US commercial spacecraft.
Currently, Elon Musk's SpaceX is the only company authorized to carry astronauts to the International Space Station.
