SpaceX will launch four astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard its Crew Dragon vehicle. With all four crew members being tourists, the Axiom Space Mission 2 (Ax-2) mission will mark the second fully private mission to the ISS, following only the Axiom Space Mission 1, launched in April of 2022. The crew will launch atop a Falcon 9 Block 5, from Launch Complex 39A, at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, in Florida.
This mission will mark the first return to launch site landing of a crewed mission. This is made possible by SpaceX’s high Starlink launch cadence, which has allowed many optimizations to be made to the vehicle.
