NASA promotes space tourism in retro new posters

NASA promotes space tourism in retro new posters

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has released three retro posters that it commissioned to promote space tourism.

Designed by the creative team at Invisible Creatures, the images are for NASA’s ‘Visions of the Future’ calendar for 2016, which is given as a gift by the agency to staff and associates.

New York, are you ready?

We’re building Momentum: an all killer, no filler event this November.

Each poster offers a glimpse of what holidays in space may be sold as in the future.

First up is a once in a lifetime trip to Mars, looking back at what could someday be historical sites on the planet. The poster is a nod to the work being done by NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, which seeks to prove that the planet can or can’t be habitable by humans in the future.

The Grand Tour offers a journey from earth to Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, but only every 175 years so it really is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The poster is essentially showcasing a holiday version of NASA's Voyager mission, which used the once-every-175-year alignment of the planets to go on its own grand tour of our solar system.

Enceladus is Saturn’s sixth largest moon. NASA[index company=NASA] led a project called the Cassini mission in 2005 that discovered icy jets on Enceladus and the first signs of hydrothermal activity anywhere other than earth.

However, since recreational space travel is still a distant dream for most of us – at least until Virgin Galactic gets going – we’ll just have to make do with these posters for now.

The three designs can be bought as limited edition prints on the Invisible Creatures website and JPL will also be releasing each month’s poster as a free download.
