Space Entertainment Enterprise (SEE) plans to launch what it claims is the world’s first zero-G entertainment studio and multipurpose arena. The company is co-producing Tom Cruise’s upcoming space movie.

SEE has unveiled plans to build a space station module containing sports and entertainment venues and content studios by December 2024.

Called SEE-1, the module is designed to host film, television, music and sporting events, as well as artists, producers and creatives looking to produce content in low-orbit, microgravity environments. These facilities will support the development, production, recording, broadcasting and live broadcasting of content.

SEE intends to make its content and events in modules and make them available to third parties.

Axiom Space, which received NASA approval in January to build the commercial portion of the International Space Station (ISS), will undertake the construction of SEE-1. The module will be docked at Axiom Station, Axiom’s commercial arm, which will also host other commercial projects, including space tourism.

The Axiom Station will separate from the International Space Station in 2028.

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

Dmitry and Elena Lesnevsky said in a statement: “SEE-1 is a great opportunity for humanity to enter a different realm and open an exciting new chapter in space.”

“It will provide a unique and accessible home for limitless entertainment possibilities in a venue filled with innovative that will unleash a new world of creativity. With the world-leading Axiom Space building this cutting-edge revolutionary facility, SEE-1 will provide the first and highest quality space structure capable of expanding the $2 trillion global entertainment industry into low Earth orbit,” the statement continued.
