Everyone loves a rocket, and that's scientific fact.
And illustrator Tyler Skrabek understands our fascination with massive upwardly-mobile matter propellants, as he has crafted this excellent poster, featuring the rockets of the world drawn to scale, including Sputnik, the first artificial Earth satellite, and the mighty Saturn V (pictured above) which took the crew of Apollo 11 to the moon.
It's an updated version of a 1995 design classic, originally made by professor Peter Alway, in his book - entitled, appropriately enough - Rockets of the World.
And if that's got you in the mood, check out this video of all 135 Space Shuttle launches, grab onto your seat and imagine yourself in the cockpit. Godspeed fearless space traveller, enjoy the ride.
