CEV & inflatable space habitat rendezvous
In this speculative illustration, a manned Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) rendezvouses with an inflatable space habitat in low Earth orbit in preparation for docking at an altitude of about 250 miles. This view is from the "top" of the inflatable habitat revealing the five-foot-diameter glass observation port (currently covered by a protective cap).
