The official home base for the Musician's Aid Society, Space Station Three is a low-cost hostel open to musicians[2], with an attached concert hall.

Many Filkers call Space Station Three their "Bardic College". This is a reference to its administrative function as a place where musicians can find work, release recordings with some hope of not having them pirated on their release day, and compare their fanbases, not a hint that the station has any educational facilities.[3]

Either the Dandelions go out of their way to perpetuate the myth invoked by the station's name, or Carmen Miranda's Ghost Is Haunting Space Station Three - either way, there's always fresh fruit available on the station.
