NASA Travel Posters



Kids and adults alike dream about being an astronaut and traveling into outer space. Those dreams often include white spacesuits with fishbowl helmets and rocket-booster backpacks. But what if our dreams of other worlds looked more like our fantasies of walking on white sandy beaches while gazing at postcard-worthy skylines? Someone at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology combined those visions of space and sky into distant planets, with names like Kepler-186f, HD 40307g and Kepler-16b. The images are available as downloadable, high-res, mid-century illustrated travel posters with taglines like, "Where the Grass is Always Redder on the Other Side," "Experience the Gravity of a Super Earth" and "Where Your Shadow Always has Company." Dreamy.
