This picture is of the Orion crew cabin. It is currently incomplete, but by 2014 it will not only be completed, it will also be attached to a Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle and blasted up to space. The 2014 launch will be a test of the Orion spacecraft and will return important data concerning life support systems, reentry effectiveness, and many other things.
