The Space Station Data Centre is the first modular data hub created by the Swedish broadband provider Banhof. The installation functions as a mobile and cheap shelter for servers using the outside temperature to keep them cool. The construction features a spacious double-wide module built of bullet-proof steel to protect the servers. These various armour blocks are connected to “The Dome,” an in inflatable central vestibule that accommodate the security staff. The entire apparatus stands on red lava stones imported from Iceland. To emphasise the otherworldliness, the opening mechanisms of the data centre doors make an identical sound to the doors on the spaceship in the film Alien.
