    Sweden Kirunawhy?A significant factor of working together with Spaceport Sweden is that, in common with Space-port America in New Mexico which will be our pri-mary operating base, they can, as and when we are able to operate outside the US, offer much more that just a spaceport for space tourism, said Mr. Will Whitehorn. Im not just thinking about the unique adventures one can enjoy in the Kiruna area, but also the long experience that Space-port Sweden has in space science with sounding rockets, (i.e.. suborbital flight performed by the Swedish Space Corporation from Esrange Space Center). They have been in this business since 1966 and have the experience, the knowledge and the infrastructure needed to launch and commu-nicate with experiments performed in space in real time. This really matches our vision of mak-ing further use of the new technology developed by Burt Rutan at Scaled Composites in California.

    Low Earth OrbitThe site for the space station is located Near Po-lar LEO, the site is 435 miles altitude and allows for a global perspective. Objects in LEO encoun-ter atmospheric drag in the form of gases in the thermosphere (approximately 80-500 km up) or exosphere (approximately 500 km and up), depending on orbit height. LEO is an orbit around Earth between the atmosphere and below the inner Van Allen radiation belt. The altitude is usu-ally not less than 300 km because that would be impractical due to the larger atmospheric drag.Equatorial low Earth orbits (ELEO) are a subset of LEO. These orbits, with low inclination to the Equator, allow rapid revisit times and have the lowest delta-v requirement of any orbit. Orbits with a high inclination angle are usually called polar orbits.Higher orbits include medium Earth orbit (MEO), sometimes called intermediate circular orbit (ICO), and further above, Geostationary orbit

    ConceptThe experience of visiting a space port is different then jus going to the airport. Three major imple-mentations that direct the design are program, space, and form; which the training componentry and mechanical aspect (hidden but experienced) are blending the ideas of cinema , sublime, and architectural space. The experience of the space port should be viewed not only by the passengers but as well as visitors that would like to watch the travelers launch off into space. It will be a theatre for how space travel will be like. From the moment that the passengers arrive they will be taking part on essential training that can be viewed throughout the architecture. The interior spaces and language will be designed in inconjunction with the space station so that they are properly prepared to under-stand inhabiting lower orbit space. The exterior of the building will express the harsh environment of the artic and address the weather issues.

    ConceptTo bestill upon an object and look outside of your-self and realize the infinite realm of existence, is too view upon the outside looking in, or down. Earth is where you once were, space is where you may be, and the interstitial existence between is a journey only described by emotions, not words. The Space Station Extremenist allows for space travel to the enthsiest, who can experience the out of body, out of mind, and out of earth experi-ence to the outter most potential. When arriving at the Space Station Extremenist the visitor will have accomadations with full 360 views of the heavens, earth, and the limitless, every room allows for spa-tial ideas of fiilling as though you are not aboard a station, and every path way leads to an edge. The Space Station Extremenist will allow for ac-tivites such as cord jumping, intergalactic athletic space sports, ie. space golf, space tennis, and freestyle events of every nature. The Space Station Extremenist will house top of the world dining, the outthere Bar, and other emenities for the daring

    aAurora Borealis are natural light displays in the sky, usually observed at night, particularly in the polar regions. They typi-cally occur in the ionosphere. The phenomenon of aurora is an interaction between the Earths magnetic field and solar wind Auroras are produced by the collision of charged par-ticles from Earths magnetosphere, mostly electrons but also protons and heavier particles, with atoms and molecules of Earths upper atmosphere

  • wEATHERBeing located 145 kilometres north of the Arctic Cir-cle, Kiruna has a Sub-Arctic climate with short, cool summers and long, cold winters, although the city it-self can be considerably milder than the surrounding forest. Snowcover generally lasts from mid-October to mid-May, but snowfall can occur year-round. The sun doesnt set between May 30 and July 15, and perpetual daylight lasts from early May to early Au-gust. The period that the sun doesnt rise lasts from early December to early January, the exact bound-aries depending on local topography. In this time of the year, a few hours of twilight are the only daylight available..

    The image portrays the idea that space travel is a constant mode of travel that several ships are de-parting from the space port.

    Redefining what the future of control towers are. Experiencing the architecture as well as be-ing able to have a working com-mand station

  • Pushing the limits of what a plat-form or gate terminal is for space travel. This image is designed around the technology of ships that are able to hover over plat-forms.

    5This image is showing the idea that the spaceport can be more than just a stagnet building. That elements of the spaceport can be detachable transport ships.

  • cinematic perspective a

    1 This scene from Solaris is showing the practicality of egress in a space station. These walls floors and cielings can be used in a variety of ways in case that the arti-ficial gravity belt fails and passengers are able to climb and float around.

  • 2 This scene shows the materiality and spaces that are involved in a spacestation. The future of commercial space travel can be more welcoming expressing more than just the functional mechanical aspects of the spaces.

  • 3 4This scene from mission to mars show the current idea for dock-ing with a space station. This moment of arrival can be pushed by introducing a space airstrip and terminal gate. This scene from mission to mars gives us an idea of the utilitar-ian uses of egresses places vegitation farms. This is the idea of utilizing the habital spaces in adaptable ways

    This scence from gattaca portrays an etherial experience of leaving ones home planet and entering a new one. This scene metaphorically shows us that it is some what similar to child birth exiting the womb.

    This scene shows us a componentry sys-tem and how people are able us the spac-es that are the same but in multiple ways.

    This gives us the idea of possible energy sources that can be harnessed and how it can defined the architecture of space sta-tion.

  • * As our planet becomes more intercon-nected we use technology to connect us throught the use of satelites that are in constant need of repair

  • Historical OUTCOME a

    1 Space travel has been designed by engineers not architects. The experience for both astronauts and viewers has been a scientific machanical experience of awe. The goal for commercial space travel is to bring the sublime to the experience of reaching place never experienced.
