Axiom Space's four astronauts are scheduled to return to Earth on February 7 after spending over two weeks aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The astronauts launched to the orbital lab on January 19 from Florida as part of the Axiom-3 mission, the third crewed endeavour of Axiom Space in collaboration with NASA and SpaceX.

According to NASA, the Ax-3 crew will undock from the space station at 7:35 pm IST and splashdown a few hours later off the coast of Florida. The team's departure was delayed by a couple of days due to bad weather conditions at the splashdown zone.

About the Ax-3 mission

Astronauts Michael López-Alegría, Walter Villadei, Alper Gezeravcı, and Marcus Wandt were part of what Axiom Space called the first-ever all-European mission to the ISS. It also included the first astronaut from Türkiye to visit space.

During their stay aboard the ISS, the team conducted over 30 science experiments in the fields of physics and medicine. Axiom Space has so far launched three crewed missions with 'civilians' on April 8, 2022, May 21, 2023 and on January 19, 2024.
