NASA’s Vintage-Inspired Space Tourism Posters

Gold.jpg
Someone get Branson on the phone and tell him to hurry the hell up with space tourism.
 
NASA, or most specifically NASA’s coolly titled Jet Propulsion Laboratory, are behind a set of stunning vintage themed travel posters promoting space tourism, opening our eyes to what the terrain of exoplanets afar could one day offer us.
 
Boasting bright designs, exoplanets visualised include HD 40307g, Kepler-186f and Kepler-16b (admittedly, NASA’s marketing team still have a bit of work to do regarding place names), with each print cleverly showing what makes that place unique.
 
Blast your way onto Kepler-16b one day and chances are you’ll discover “the land of the two suns”, along with two shadows and inhospitable dry ice all around that would kill you within minutes should your space suit fail to work. Not exactly beach break material. 
 
Or maybe you’re the adventurous type, the adrenaline junkie hankering to experience a gravitational pull just not available on earth. Then you'd want to head on across to HD 40307g, a floating rock almost eight times bigger in mass than our current home.
 
Meanwhile over on Kepler-186f, countryside lovers may be swayed the giant red plant life. All going well, none of it would eat you. 
 
Whatever your destination of choice, it's one small step for graphic design and one giant leap for people who just want to holiday in space already.
