dc.description.abstractIn recent years, new space stations in low Earth orbit have been considered and developed by several private U.S. companies to replace the International Space Station (ISS), which is scheduled for decommissioning in 2030. Elsewhere, China is building its own space station. In the future, when more people will stay in orbit for longer periods of time, the following demands are expected to arise: (1) a place for orbiters to relax and unwind, (2) a place for communication, and (3) a place for new cultural activities of humankind. We believe that a facility for public entertainment and cultural activities in space satisfies these demands, and designed a crewed module in space that functions as a place for cultural activities such as a concert and live performance. Our design provides the following attractiveness:(1) audience placement and stage performances that do not exist on the ground, taking advantage of microgravity in a low-earth orbit and (2) a view of the earth through a huge window that does not exist on old space stations. In this paper, the feasibility of these facilities in view of environmental control, structure and human safety is studied and planning how to operate it in orbit is also considered.
