  1. In medicine, vessels are “pipes” transporting the blood in an organism. We distinguish “arteries” (which transport blood from the heart to the organs) and “veins” (from the organs to the heart).
  2. In science fiction, a vessel is an artificial vehicle allowing people to move in space. We distinguish several kind of vessels:
    • Orbital vessel: designed to shuttle back and forth between a planet and facilities in orbit, or to move between two facilities in orbit.
    • Interplanetary vessel: conceived to move between two planets belonging to a same stellar system (the current technology would allow the construction of such vessels).
    • Interstellar vessel: designed to move between stars belonging to a same galaxy.
    • Intergalactic vessel: designed to move between two galaxies.

Matching words: Colony ship, Solar sail
