Next generation crew capsule. Computer artwork showing how the next generation of spaceflight command module might look. The Deep Space Vehicle's (DSV) crew capsule, or Command Module, will be similar to the Apollo Command Module in shape, however it will be larger, with enough room for as many as six astronauts, versus Apollo's three. The DSV would also supplement its electrical power with two arrays of solar panels (blue), which would aid in extending its mission endurance beyond Apollo's 14 day limit.
