New travel posters released by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, envision a day when the creativity of scientists and engineers will allow unimaginable things to be done. One can take a virtual trip to 14 alien worlds, and plaster living rooms with planetary art, via the new, futuristic space tourism posters. The posters are available free for downloading and printing at: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/visions-of-the-future/
Last year, five posters depicting planets beyond the 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 visualise 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.
