Axiom: the successor to the International Space Station

With U.S. Congress wanting to de-orbit the ISS by the end of 2030, the Axiom Station is currently in line to replace it. Described as „the world’s first commercial space station”, Texas-based Axiom has a $140 million contract with NASA to attach at least one module to the ISS. Further sections will be added, until the time they will separate and become an independent entity. The project has attracted serious names, with rumours of Tom Cruise being one of the first visitors and visionary creator Philippe Starck having designed Axiom crew accommodations. Orbiting 250 miles above the Earth’s surface and traveling over 17,000 miles per hour, the Axiom Station will be a commercial laboratory and residential infrastructure in space that will serve as a home to microgravity experiments, critical space-environment materials testing, and private and professional astronauts alike.

British railway station’s historic Victorian signal box put up for auction

Torquay, Devon, United Kingdom: A Grade II-listed former railway signal box in Devon has been put up for sale. The unique, three-floor, rectangular brick and glass-fronted signal box is situated on the platform at Torre Station in Torquay. Worth an estimated £54,000, the box dates back to 1848, when the railway station first opened, and has retained many of its historical features - such as signal levers and signalman's armchair. It is now being put up for auction by Paul Fosh Auctions, with planning permission to be converted into a holiday home. Additional features include the cast iron coal stove, wood panelling, high ceilings and the panoramic windows.

For auction: five vintage Austin cars that belonged to newspaper entrepreneur

United Kingdom: H&H Classics auctioneers will offer five vintage Austin cars that, until recently, formed part of British newspaper entrepreneur Sir Ray Tindle’s illustrious collection. Sir Tindle founded the Tindle Newspaper Group and the Tindle Radio Group. After wartime service with the Devonshire Regiment, he bought his first title, the Tooting & Balham Gazette with his £250 demob payment. The Austins, from the 1920s and 30s, will go on sale on 14th April at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. They are being sold with No Reserve. Damian Jones, Head of Sales at H&H comments: „A British collection like this coming to the market in a post Brexit world from a great national classic car owner who also championed local journalism across the country, will doubtless create great interest when they go under the hammer at Duxford.”
