About Our Featured Presentation: Building Axiom Station

Axiom Space is building the world’s first commercial space station, Axiom Station. Construction of Axiom Space’s first habitation module for the commercial space station is underway and is on track to launch its first module to the International Space Station by 2026. Megan Yang, the Environmental Control and Life Support System (ECLSS) Water Accumulation and Treatment Assembly (WATA) Group Lead, will talk about her role and experience designing the space station to support continuous human presence living in space after the International Space Station’s (ISS) deorbit, which is planned for 2030.
