Film studio, Sports Arena to be built in the room

Space Entertainment Enterprise (SEE), the company that co-produces Tom Cruise's upcoming space film, plans to launch a sports arena and a zero-gravity production studio.

SEE has unveiled plans to build a space station module that includes a sports and entertainment arena as well as a content study by December 2024. (An artist's rendering is shown above.)

The module, called SEE-1, is intended to host movies, TV, music and sporting events as well as artists, producers and creatives who want to create content in the low-circuit, micro-gravity environment. The facilities will enable the development, production, recording, broadcast and live streaming of content.

SEE intends to produce its own content and events in the module as well as to make it available to third parties.

Axiom Space, which in January 2022 won NASA's approval to build a commercial component of the International Space Station (ISS), will undertake the construction of SEE-1. The module will berth at Axiom's commercial arm, called Axiom Station, which will also host other commercial ventures, including space tourism.

Axiom Station will then be separated from the ISS in 2028.

SEE, which was co-founded in the UK by entrepreneurs and producers Elena and Dmitry Lesnevsky, is currently planning a fundraising round.

"SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into another world and launch an exciting new chapter in space," Dmitry and Elena Lesnevsky said in a statement. "It will provide a unique and accessible home for unlimited entertainment options in a place packed with innovative infrastructure that will unleash a new world of creativity. With the world's leading Axiom Space building this groundbreaking, revolutionary facility, SEE-1 will not provide only the first, but also the highest quality space structure, enabling the expansion of the two trillion-dollar global low-entertainment entertainment industry. "

"Axiom Station, the world's first commercial space station, is designed as the basic infrastructure that enables a diverse economy in orbit," said Michael Su ff redini, President / CEO of Axiom Space. "Adding a dedicated entertainment venue to Axiom Station's commercial capabilities in the form of SEE-1 will expand the station's usefulness as a platform for a global user base and highlight the range of opportunities the new space economy offers."

"SEE-1 will showcase and utilize the space environment in an unprecedented way," said Axiom's chief engineer Dr. Michael Baine. "The inflatable module design provides about six meters in diameter of unobstructed print volume that can be adapted to a range of activities - including a built-in state-of-the-art media production capability that will capture and convey the experience of weightlessness with breathtaking impact."

Richard Johnston, COO of SEE added: "From Jules Verne to 'Star Trek', science fiction entertainment has inspired millions of people around the world to dream about what the future may bring. Creating a next-generation entertainment space in space inspires open countless doors to create incredible new content and make those dreams come true. "
