On this episode, we review the Axiom 2 launch and docking to the ISS after riding up on Crew Dragon 'Freedom' and a brand new Falcon 9! (A rare sight these days). Lots of great 1sts on this mission, including a great crew of four that will spend 8 total days on station before returning to Earth for splashdown.
We'll also share our thoughts on why the International Space Station really is the original 'gateway' for humanity post-cold war. And with the boom in New Space business and lower cost to access space, the Space Station will usher us into the age of commercial space stations and Artemis with the Lunar Gateway! But it didn't seem like that 10 years ago...alot has happened since then...
Let us know what you think, and if you have any thoughts on how influencial the space station has been, and will continue to be in its final decade of service.
