Cruise shuttle docked with the ISS No. 1

In this speculative illustration a reusable space tourism "cruise" shuttle is docked with the International Space Station (ISS) at an altitude of 250 miles. This shuttle is 75 feet long by 55 feet wide. The ISS is about 360 feet by 240 feet, or slightly larger than a football field.
