44 Israeli experiments to join Israel's next astronaut to space
The sky isn’t the limit for 44 Israeli research projects that are going to be carried out in outer space by Eytan Stibbe as part of the Rakia mission at the beginning of 2022.
Stibbe is set to be Israel’s second astronaut to be sent to outer space in a mission to the INternational Space Station, led by the Science and Technology Ministry and the Ramon Foundation. Stibbe is funding the $50 million cost of his participation on the Ax-1 mission himself on what will be the first fully private crew in history to live and work aboard the ISS, run by the American company Axiom Space.
