The world’s first commercial space station is set to expand with the first multipurpose entertainment and content studio in space – expanding on the Axiom Space vision of an expansive and thriving low-Earth orbit economy. Axiom, the leader in human spaceflight services and human-rated space infrastructure, has been contracted by UK-based Space Entertainment Enterprise (S.E.E.) to manufacture SEE-1, an inflatable space station module targeted for launch to the Axiom segment of the International Space Station at the end of 2024. The microgravity media venue will comprise one-fifth of Axiom Station’s initial configuration when it is completed and ready to separate from the ISS.

“Axiom Station, the world’s first commercial space station, is designed as the foundational infrastructure enabling a diverse economy in orbit,” Michael Suffredini, Axiom President/CEO, said. “Adding a dedicated entertainment venue to Axiom Station’s commercial capabilities in the form of SEE-1 will expand the station’s utility as a platform for a global user base and highlight the range of opportunities the new space economy offers.”
