Your Night Sky Might Feature A Space Studio By 2024

A company called Space Entertainment Enterprise (SEE) is trying to raise funds to build an entertainment studio that is literally out of this world, by December 2024. It’s a move that is sure to give the Fast & Furious franchise all sorts of bad ideas.
Called the SEE-1, the space module will be built by Axiom Space, which won the approval to build a commercial component on the ISS. After completion, the Axiom Station will not only host the space studio, but also a 5-star luxury hotel!
It is also the same company that intends to send Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman to the International Space Station this year to shoot a movie. While Cruise was initially set to be jetted off in October 2021, budgetary issues delayed the plans.
In the meantime, a Russian film crew successfully flew to the ISS in October and completed a 12-day shoot for a movie called ‘The Challenge.’
Perhaps to make the commute short, the SEE-1 module will feature everything you’d need to shoot a movie, television series, music, live gigs and even sports. If this is how Quidditch becomes a reality, we’re on board!
But not only does SEE intend to create its original content but it will also make the module available to third parties as well.
In a statement, Dmitry and Elena Lesnevsky were quoted as saying. “SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into a different realm and start an exciting new chapter in space,”
Further adding, “It will provide a unique, and accessible home for boundless entertainment possibilities in a venue packed with innovative infrastructure which will unleash a new world of creativity. With worldwide leader Axiom Space building this cutting-edge, revolutionary facility, SEE-1 will provide not only the first but also the supreme quality space structure enabling the expansion of the two trillion-dollar global entertainment industry into low-Earth orbit.”
According to Dr Michael Baine, Axiom’s chief engineer, the inflatable module will be around six meters in diameter. It’ll be designed in a way that can be adapted to suit a range of activities, including full-blown media production.
Of course, the idea seems like something straight out of an episode of The Jetsons. But with Axiom planning to detach itself from the ISS in 2028 and building its own commercial station, we may see similar studios popping up in our night sky.
