Axiom Space, a company planning to add a private segment to the International Space Station with NASA support, has announced a deal with SpaceX. According to the terms of the contract, in the second half of 2021, the SpaceX Dragon 2 spacecraft will deliver one professional astronaut prepared by Axiom and three space tourists to the ISS. They will spend at least eight days at the station. Axiom expects to make such flights regular.

The American Mars rover of the Mars 2020 mission was called Perseverance (“Persistence”, read as “pesavierens”). The launch is scheduled for July 17, 2020. Together with the rover, a mini-helicopter will be delivered to Mars for the first time in history. Other interesting tools include a radar for studying the subsurface structure of the planet and an experiment for the production of oxygen from carbon dioxide – the main component of the Martian atmosphere. Perseverance is built on the same platform as the Curiosity rover operating since 2012.

Stratolaunch, which curtailed after its founder Paul Allen died of cancer, announced its intention to resume flights in September. Stratolaunch is developing an air-launched launch vehicle from a large twin-body aircraft.
