Space Hero, Lava and One Digital Entertainment has announced plans for the creation of Space Village, a series of 10 iconic futuristic space-inspired landmarks in different locations around the world. Space Village is designed by Alexander Rieck from German architectural firm LAVA. Each Space Village will feature a large space center and a glimpse of forward-looking technology that will stimulate the visitor's imagination.
A media studio to produce Space Hero, the global competition series, and an iconic hotel, where fans of the series can watch events unfold in real-time, will add to the first-of-its kind features that Space Village will offer.
As part of the Space Hero series, 24 Space Hero finalists complete numerous challenges in a setting that resembles the various conditions in space to prepare for an extraordinary mission, including thriving underwater in a buoyancy tank. The challenges will resemble the endurance tests astronauts must complete when training for a mission.
Inside Space Village, the finalists' living quarters will model spacecraft conditions and finalists will be challenged to create their own energy and grow food. A jury, which will include a group of experienced astronauts, scientists, and professional athletes, will observe the finalists' behavior and character. Global audiences will be able to vote for their favorite finalist during weekly episodes.
"Visitors to Space Village will experience what life could be in 30 years; sustainable, yet comfortable, healthy and happy, "said Thomas Reemer founding partner of TDGA Holdings Limited, owner of the Space Hero IP. "We want to show our visitors a future that they can look forward to, using the endless possibilities our planet has to offer."
"Traveling to the stars continues to be the dream of millions of people around the world, and the Space Village will offer visitors that space-themed futuristic thrill of a lifetime," said Deborah Sass, a founding partner of TDGA Holdings Limited, owner of the Space Hero IP. "Children will be inspired to prepare for a career in Space and join exhibitions to the Moon, Mars and beyond." She added.
"We didn't just want to simulate a space craft or living on Mars but showcase how technology that is developed for conditions in Space, is benefitting the future of living on planet Earth. With 10 more Space Villages to be built all over the World, we have a chance to explore any living condition and how to react to it", said Rieck, who is also a professor at the renowned Fraunhofer Institute. "Space Village brings back the hope for an astonishing future world full of miracles. It connects the old dream of travelling to the stars with more actual needs of a sustainable, healthy, and healing earth," Rieck added.
"We see this as an opportunity to not just build something extraordinary but also extremely futuristic, as people on Earth are inevitably finding ways to live sustainably in the future. We believe that we will create experiences and motivate people in general on all elements of travel, sustainability, and empathy for our environment. Space comes closer with jaw dropping experiences for everyone, which only a handful of a lucky few have experienced so far. We are fully capable technologically and at scale to make this a global success," said Shabir Momin and Gurpreet Singh, Founders of One Digital Entertainment.
Over the next two decades TDGA Holdings Limited plans to build 15 Space Villages around the World.

Building on Mars or the Luna: You'll need extraterrestrial cement for that
Newark DE (SPX) Aug 11, 2022
Sustained space exploration will require infrastructure that doesn't currently exist: buildings, housing, rocket landing pads. So, where do you turn for construction materials when they are too big to fit in your carry-on and there's no Home Depot in outer space? "If we're going to live and work on another planet like Mars or the moon, we need to make concrete. But we can't take bags of concrete with us - we need to use local resources," said Norman Wagner, Unidel Robert L. Pigford Chair of ... read more
