Mysterious Alvarez

I’m pretty sure the top piece is by North American master illustrator M. Alvarez because he/she signed it. I think the bottom is by the same hand. What are we looking at? It’s a space station, but you knew that. You now know as much as I do. Parked here only because it shares the same page in Flying the Space Shuttles as the 1982 concept by Ted Brown I shared earlier.

Convair Migrator

An ad in a 1962 issue of Missiles & Rockets magazine describes this concept as a multi-purpose concept designated “Migrator.” Beginning in 1968, it could serve as a highly versatile, operational space station. “Migrator” will contain an onboard propulsion system, giving the vehicle the capability to migrate from one operational site to another, and will offer extended usefulness by serving as an interplanetary spacecraft.
