Berlin unveils 'crewed spaceship', BBC

"A model of a proposed European manned spaceship has gone on show at the Berlin Air Show. The design, which has been produced by EADS Astrium, is based on the unmanned "Jules Verne" freighter recently sent to the International Space Station.

Astrium says a crewed version of the truck is a logical evolution, and could fly in the next decade if it received support from European governments. Key states - Germany, France, and Italy - are said to be very interested."
