Ready are the first space tourists SpaceSex will take to ISS

Three people who will head as tourists with US company SpaceSex's Dragon ship to the International Space Station (ISS) have signed a contract with Axiom Space Company, TASS reported.
“The international crew, comprising three private astronauts and Commander Michael Lopez-Allegría, signed a contract with Axiom.

In other words, the first ever private crew to head into orbit has been formed,” the company said in a message posted on Twitter. The first flight will take place no earlier than the end of 2021, BTA transmits.

In March, Axiom Space Company with headquarters in Houston, Texas, agreed with SpaceSex to transport three space tourists to the ISS. It is assumed that the space tour will last ten days - two days for flight and eight days of residence on the station.
