That's the Space Station, of course. The Soyuz escape module is on the left, the robot arm on the right, and an array of mechanical equipment studs the station.

LEM has created a bunch more of these, many as stunning as the ones here; start here and scroll through. They are amazing. Tip o' the colored glasses to Paolo Amoroso.
