NASA’s Travel Posters Will Make You Want to Visit Space (More Than You Already Want To)
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab has released a free online series of space travel posters that are equal parts retro-chic and sheer design genius. With cheeky taglines like “Venus—See You At The Cloud 9 Conservatory,” and “Kepler186f—Where The Grass Is Always Redder On The Other Side,” the “Visions of The Future” series includes 14 free, downloadable posters each as visually striking as the next.
"We strive to be bold in advancing the edge of possibility so that someday, with the help of new generations of innovators and explorers, these visions of the future can become a reality," an explanation of the poster series on the Jet Propulsion Laboratory website reads.
On their blog, brothers Don and Ryan Clark—who created three of the posters and whose grandfather was an illustrator for NASA—wrote: “Given our family history, you can only imagine how we responded. We are very honored and lucky to have worked on such an amazing project.” Look out Cuba, Mars could be the next on T+L designated travel destination of the year.
