Gustavia, January 3rd, 2021 – As much of the world remained in Covid-19 lockdown, My Yacht® Group continued its intimate series of Astronaut Dinners on the island of St. Bart’s during its peak Holiday Season, introducing select UHNW guests to Axiom Space.
On hand to share his unique off-planet knowledge and experience, and visiting the island for the first time was Cdr. Michael Lopez-Alegría (U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame) who will journey to the International Space Station as Commander of Ax-1, Axiom’s first private astronaut mission, scheduled for January 2022, in what will be his 5th astronaut mission.
Even on an island that attracts some of the world’s most successful people – global billionaires, heads of state, megayacht owners, A-list celebrities – a soon-to-be-5-time astronaut with 257 days in space and 67 spacewalk hours garnered a lot of attention, and he was personally welcomed by St. Barth President Bruno Magras.
Axiom has entered into an agreement with NASA to train and fly professional, as well as private, astronauts to the ISS. The 10-day PAM – private astronaut mission – has individuals train alongside professional NASA astronauts with a program designed with optimal preparation and minimal schedule disruption in mind.
My Yacht Group and Axiom Space will continue to host The Astronaut Dinners in a series of global cities in the coming months.
