2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY - PanAm Space Clipper

About Orion PanAm Space Clipper:
The first major spacecraft to appear in the film was the Orion III, aka the Pan Am Space Clipper. A commercial space plane whose lines would one day be echoed in the actual American Space Shuttle, the Orion III achieved orbit by means not revealed in the film, but presumably landed like a conventional aircraft. The vehicle had a limited seating area, suggesting that even in the "future" of the year of 2001, commercial space travel would be the province of only the very rich.

Totally rendered in Bryce 4, postwork with Photoshop.
The original file is 3189x2126 pixels.

Thanks, Luca, for posting. I also visited your website. You allows free downloads of OBP files for Star Trek and 2001, but I am puzzled about how to open the OBP files except by buying the OBP software. Is your art available in other formats? (I see this was uploaded 3 years ago, so I hope you are still checking.) Smile!

The very nature of commercial space flight would likly never compare with a jumbo jet carrying 300 to 500 passengers at a time. Possibly the Pan Am ORION III was an early attempt at a commercial space access company with "Air Line" reliability. Just as Pan Am, and others of the 30's and 40's were using planes like the Boeing 247, the DC-2 and DC-3, and the Pan Am Boeing 314 flying boats. All had smaller numbers of passengers. So the ORION III with its twenty odd passengers would reflect a capability of say, the CONCORD of the 70's and 90's.

Space Station V model by Michael Powell...

I can't see the Orion well enough to tell who did that... probably B.J. West.

In the book, the "Pan Am Space Clipper" took off like a normal airplane would.
