Private Space Station Coming Soon? Company Aiming for 2020 Launch

By Leonard David, Space.com’s Space Insider Columnist…

Work is underway to establish the world’s first private, international commercial space station, a complex that would serve a global community of sovereign and private astronauts.

The builders of the Axiom International Commercial Space Station aim to enlarge the landscape of low-Earth orbit, to create what they view as a “historic shift” in human spaceflight.

Making a space outpost available to nations, organizations and individuals could help make living and working in Earth orbit commonplace and support the exploration of deep space, Axiom representatives said.
