Click on image to to go HD version.
The frieght capsule consists of robotic modules that connect in different configurations. When captured by the gateway spacestation at L1, the modules disengage from each other, and make their ways to their respective destinations on the station. The three spherical tanks contain liquid hydrogen, to fuel interplanetary missions. The rear (screen left) module is a human passenger module, normally reserved for emergency evacuations. In this case it carries Cliff Leyland, as a favor by ground crew at the Aitken mining facility.
