NASA Exoplanet Space Tourism Posters
Hey, before you book that mid-February getaway to Miami, have you considered a 4 day/3 night stay on Kepler-186f? Lovely little place. Just make sure you charge up your phone, what with it being 500 light years from Earth and all.
The artists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have come up with three posters by the “Exoplanet Travel Bureau” that spotlight what some habitable exoplanets might look like. The designs are in the same vein as the famous prints from the mid-1930s by the Works Progress Administration. There’s Kepler-186f (“Where the grass is always redder om the other side”), Kepler-16b (“Where your shadow always has company”), and of course you can’t rule out a nice trip to HD 40307g (“Experience the gravity of a Super Earth”), an exoplanet twice as big in volume as Earth. You can download hi-res version of each poster from the NASA website.
