The first fully private crew on an 10-day mission to the International Space Station is commanded by former NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria.

With the arrival of the four crew members (Mark Pathy, Eytan Stibbe, Larry Connor, and Michael Lopez-Alegria), there are now 11 individuals working at the ISS. 

As of writing, the Ax-1 crew is still conducting various experiments. All of these types of research are essential to enhance human spaceflight. 

But, they only have until Apr. 19 since they need to return to Earth. Now, you can watch the live coverage of Axiom Mission’s return spaceflight.

Space fans can watch the live stream by visiting NASA Television’s official website and NASA app. On the other hand, Axiom Space’s official page will also record the return of its latest space mission. 

“NASA and Axiom Space will begin coverage on Tuesday, April 19, with a farewell ceremony between the Ax-1 and Expedition 67 crews,” said the international space union. 

When it comes to scheduling, the Axiom Mission will undock from the International Space Station at exactly 10:35 a.m. EDT on Apr. 19. 

After leaving the ISS, the SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft is expected to bring the Ax-1 crew safely back to Earth at 7:19 a.m. EDT on Apr. 20.  

Ax-1 Return’s Schedule 

Before the Axiom Mission makes its Earth re-entry, the Ax-1 crew members will still complete several activities. The following activities will all be conducted on Apr. 19: 

  • 7 a.m. (Axiom Mission crewmates will have a farewell ceremony) 
  • 8:15 a.m. (They will close their spacecraft’s hatch before departing the International Space Station) 
  • 10:15 a.m. (The SpaceX Dragon rocket used for the mission will start undocking itself from the ISS) 

Since the new Ax-1 mission is quite different from the recent spaceflights, many experts claimed that the latest Axiom Mission is a giant leap for the rising commercial orbital flights, as reported by Quartz

Some of them even believe that the Ax-1 mission can be the start of the so-called space real estate business. If you want to see further details about it, you can visit this link

On Apr. 12, a space study revealed some new long-term spaceflight effects on the human body. 

Meanwhile, NASA’s Webb Space Telescope MIRI is now active after reaching minus 266 degrees Celsius.
