Images of Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) scale model under test at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. The CEV will be NASA's new 'spaceship' that will take astronauts to the International Space Station, the Moon and beyond.

Scale model of Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) Scale model of Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) being prepared for testing in the Unitary Wind Tunnel Complex at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., in early March 2006. The CEV will be NASA's new spaceship that will fly astronauts to the International Space Station, the Moon and beyond. In this wide angle shot, wind tunnel instrumentation is on the left, and on the right, in the distance, is the CEV model and a NASA TV cameraman.
