Cruise shuttle docked with space habitat

In this speculative illustration a reusable space tourism "cruise" shuttle is docked with the International Space Station (ISS) at an altitude of 250 miles.

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

This shuttle is 75 feet long by 55 feet wide.
