No, this isn't a new design for the space shuttle, just Lockheed's C-5 Galaxy. It's used to provide the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry outsize and oversize cargos, including all air-certifiable cargo. Lockheed proposed a twin body C-5 as a shuttle carrier to counter the Conroy Virtus, but the design was turned down. The C-5 is among the largest military aircraft in the world.
