'Portholes are small, normally round openings in the hull of a water-going ship or spaceship. Portholes are cut into the hull, then sealed with a clear, slightly-bulged piece of plastiglass.[1] The bulged shape allows someone inside the ship to see the area of the hull immediately around the porthole by pressing their face flat against the surface.[2]

Spaceships and starships may have any desired amount of portholes placed in compartments immediately adjacent to the outer hull.[3]
