SpaceX has signed a huge contract for three special missions

According to a joint agreement signed this week with mission manager Axiom Space, the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule will temporarily launch three more special astronaut missions before 2023.

This deal is the largest to date in the emerging private airline industry.

These transactions resulted in extremely busy schedules for the International Space Station over the next several years.

The three missions are about six months apart, and after Axiom Space's first flight directly through the Crew Dragon capsule in January of next year, an all-civilian crew traveled to the International Space Station for eight days.

All flights include similar stops at the International Space Station.

Axiom Space declined to disclose the value of the deal, which has been in the works for several months and has been officially signed with SpaceX in the past few weeks.

NASA must agree on mission timings and standards, which maintain the International Space Station's schedule. In addition to a group of NASA's International Space Station partners.

SpaceX conquers space:

"The dawn of a new era of manned space travel has dawned," the SpaceX chief said in a statement.

Regarding the Axiom Space deal, SpaceX said on its website, "The partnership provides more opportunities for more people to enter space and enables humanity to become a multi-planetary person." This is a reference to its founder, Elon Musk. The goal is to colonize Mars.

For Axiom Space, these first manned kites to fly to the space station are preparatory tasks for the company's main project to build a commercial international space station module, the first of which will be installed in 2024.

All four crew members received joint commercial astronaut training from NASA and SpaceX.

SpaceX also offers courses for the Falcon 9 carrier and Crew Dragon spaceship.

It also offers emergency preparedness training, spacecraft entry and exit exercises, and partial and complete simulations.

The capsule was developed under a $3 billion contract with private funding and NASA's Commercial Crew Program.

The plan began to revitalize the United States' ability to send astronauts from the United States into space. This is after a decade of reliance on Russian missiles.

As of May 2020, SpaceX has launched three government astronauts as part of this plan. Four more people are planned for the future.
