SpaceX downscaled ITS spaceship comparison

Fan vision of possible SpaceX's scaled down version of the ITS cargo spaceship (for 9m booster) compared with the original ITS crew spaceship (for 12m booster), Space Shuttle, Orion and Dragon; created by NASASpaceFlight.com forum member lamontagne.

We will learn the actual SpaceX design for the scaled down version of the Interplanetary Transport System (ITS) only during Elon Musk's presentation at the 2017 International Astronautical Conference in Adelaide, Australia, September 29.
