NASA Visions Of The Future Travel Posters

Feb 26, 2016

Category: Living

As if any of us needed much convincing to head to outer space, NASA has commissioned a handful of travel posters for planets both inside and outside of our solar-system. Each has a mid 20th century feel to them, conjuring up a kind of retro-futurism that brings the Jetsons to mind. When you head over to the NASA website where these are on display, you can check out the explanations for each of designs, like how Jupiter’s auroras are hundreds of times more powerful than Earth’s, or how Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, is covered in lakes and rivers of liquid methane and ethane.

If you were cynical you would maybe say that this is a bit of self-indulgence on NASA’s part, but it’s important to remember that curiosity, imagination, and wonder are just as important for space exploration as the rockets that will get us there. You can download these images for free to print and hang in your apartment or home.
