In summary: So, even if you can't find what you're looking for using Google, you can probably find it on one of these websites.

Hi. I'm looking for a pic of a spacecraft for personal use. (Likely fictional, but I"m not above PhotoChopping.)

I've googled for it, but not much luck.

Looking for something manned, interplanetary, early 21st century, post-Apollo.


Kind of like this:

But I need the right angle. I need a pic from a rear oblique angle (foreshortened) The above pic is front oblique.

If anyone knows of any sites where they like to post lots of pics like this, I'm all <strike>ears</strike> eyes.

Some of NASA's sites should have art. NASA has sponsored numerous artists during the periodic resurgence of nuclear propulsion, e.g. Project Prometheus. However, I do not know what happens to the artwork when the programs come to an abrupt halt.

Something like these perhaps?

Ok, um thanks Ivan, but I was pretty specific about
- early 21 st century and post-Apollo, and
- interplanetary, not interstellar

Haha. I actually have been using the antimatter one posted on that page, which I found by Googling. It's less ... primitive than I wanted.

Early 21st century, will be all girders and air/fuel tanks like the one I linked to in my first post.

Interesting slides on Space Station concepts.

Why does one conclude that? It depends on the mission. For manned missions, hydrogenous material (fuel) will provide shielding.

For manned missions to Mars, an orbital station will likely be sent in advance. The objective will be to get astronauts through the radiation belts and to Mars as quickly as possible.

This is exactly what I'm looking for. Lots of stuff to look through. Thanks. Hope I find something.

More like this, pleeze.

I just meant they would be obviously very-near-future, not the sleek, curved organic and exotic shapes we imagine in sci-fi. I'm looking for something that says "NASA manned interplanetary spacecraft c.2030", not "Kzinti Reactionless Drive c.2130".

I wish there were more stuff like that. Before Project Prometheus was abuptly halted, graphics and images were ubiquitous. Also 20 years ago (back in the days of SP-100), images of spacecraft for missions to planets were all over the place. Then again we didn't have the internet like we do today.

The great thing about the internet is that, for every hobby (no matter how narrow or outdated), there's someone out there who is interested enough to post a website dedicated to it.
