The X-38 was going to be the crew rescue vehicle for the International Space Station. It was based on the X-24a lifting body.

When returning from orbit, it would have flown back like the Space Shuttle and would have used a steerable parafoil and skids for landing. Unfortunately it was cancelled in 2001 due to cuts in NASA's budget.
