Cruise shuttle docking with the ISS No. 1

In this speculative illustration a reusable space tourism "cruise" shuttle prepares to dock with the International Space Station (ISS).

Visible elements of the ISS include a pressurized mating adapter (PMA), an international docking adapter (IDA), several manned modules, and a solar array wing (SAW).

This shuttle is 75 feet long by 55 feet wide.
