CEV docking with the ISS No. 1
In this speculative illustration a manned Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) prepares to dock with the the International Space Station (ISS).
This view is from above the CEV crew capsule. Visible elements of the ISS include a pressurized mating adapter (PMA), an international docking adapter (IDA), and manned module.
This CEV is 33 feet long with a maximum diameter of 20 feet while the solar voltaic panels have a maximum spread of a little over 60 feet.
