The travel industry is extending to low earth orbit, thanks in part to Houston-based Axiom Space, which aims to fly paying customers for stays of up to eight days aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Before the ISS is retired in 2030, Axiom’s modules will separate, becoming their own private station.
