With the Great American Eclipse coming later in August, there’s no doubt that once again there will be a huge surge in the popularity of space, space travel, the stars, geography and spatial thinking. What better way to really geek out than with amazing, beautiful posters, lots of them! Well, thanks to NASA you can decorate your entire office, garage or living room with them. Enter NASA – Exotic Cosmic Locales Available as Space Tourism Posters
New travel posters from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, envision a day when the creativity of scientists and engineers will allow us to do things we can only dream of now.
You can take a virtual trip to 14 alien worlds, and maybe even plaster your living room with planetary art, via the new, futuristic space tourism posters.
Last year, five posters depicting planets beyond our solar system were introduced as part of JPL’s Exoplanet Travel Bureau series. They are included in the latest set of 14 posters, which also show such locales as Mars, Jupiter’s moon Europa, Saturn’s vapor-spewing moon Enceladus, and the dwarf planet Ceres. The posters are the brainchild of The Studio at JPL, a design and strategy team that works with JPL scientists and engineers to visualize and depict complex science and technology topics. Their work is used in designing space missions and in sharing the work of NASA/JPL with the public.
The posters are available free for downloading and printing at: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/visions-of-the-future/
