NASA is giving these amazing retro space travel posters away for free


Get your ass to Mars.

Evoking that famous line in Total Recall, this incredibly cool batch of vintage posters aimed at recruiting astronauts to work on the Red Planet is a blast of nostalgia and futurism in equal measure.

Designed by bods at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre, they channel America’s assertive, finger-pointy ‘We Want You’ propaganda posters of yesteryear to a tee, even making us feel a bit guilty for not signing up for cosmonaut training ourselves.

Initially created for the Visitor Complex back in 2009, the agency has now decided to release these babies to the world, allowing you to print them off in high-resolution and do with them what you wish.

They certainly beat watching a dusty Matt Damon dicking about with some vegetables.
