SpaceX launched the second Axiom Space Ax-2 private mission to the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday. SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket was launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida with four crew on board, APA reports citing Teletrader.
The mission is expected to dock with the ISS tomorrow, with the crew returning to Earth in 16 days.
"During their time on the orbiting laboratory, the crew will conduct over 20 science and technology experiments in areas such as human physiology, physical sciences, and STEAM to help expand knowledge to benefit life on Earth in areas such as healthcare, materials, technology development, and enable industrial advances," SpaceX said. The previous Ax-1 mission was launched in April 2022 and lasted for 17 days.
