Finally The Wait is Over, NASA’s First Space Tourism Mission To Launch On 3rd April

Everyone who has a little interest in space has dreamt of going into space and doing a free walk in space. Although attached to the spaceship through a rope, it’s a very sublime experience. NASA is going to help people to go into space on a tour.

How Will This Space Tour Be Carried Out?

The Axiom Mission 1 (Ax-1) missile, organized by Axiom Space Texas, was due to be unveiled at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Sunday, April 3 but the date was changed to Wednesday, April 6. It seems that the delay was caused by the ongoing preparations for Artemis I’s Nasa missiles at a nearby launch site.

Nasa teams support the Artemis I campaign ‘vote’ today to continue wet work, scheduled for Friday, April 1, until Sunday, April 3, at Launch Pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, ‘says the blog.

The Ax-1 team will be flying the Dragon Endeavor to and from the space station. After 10 days in orbit, the Ax-1 crew will disperse down the coast of Florida.
