A number of billionaires lately spent a whopping amount of $55-million to take a trip to the ISS (International Space Station). When they reached the low Earth orbit, they didn’t think they would have to work so hard up there.
The Axiom Space’s Ax-1 mission passengers confirmed that they had no idea about the hard work they’d have to give in while on the ISS. They said during a press conference that they had tried to squeeze in too many duties, which put pressure on them and the astronauts they were with.
They were sent into space on an eight-night-long expedition, but it ended up being more like 15 days.
They were tasked with the experiments on holoportation, human cells, and high-precision optical lenses. One experiment that was supposed to take two and a half hours ended up taking more than double that amount of time. There were also days of inhabitable weather conditions that caused the trip to last longer than it was expected.
Axiom is now planning to send more billionaires into space soon, and they are hoping to have some of the problems resolved by then.
