Every Ship That Has Carried Humans Into Space, In One Chart


This is pretty cool.  A Reddit user put together a chart showing all the human occupied spacecraft that have been used so far.  Click through to see the full sized version.

One thing that stands out for me is how huge the Saturn V was, showing just how much power is need to send humans into deep space.  Or how large the Space Shuttle was in relation to all the other spacecraft, mostly related to its cargo section.  Or how big the International Space Station is in relation to everything that’s come before, including Mir.

It would’ve been nice to have seen likely future craft like the Orion capsule and its Space Launch System, or SpaceX’s Dragon capsule on this, for comparison.
