New York, Feb 10 (IANS) The US space agency NASA is not only full of scientists but it is also home to artistic dreamers and thinkers who once again stormed the internet with the release of new space tourism posters.
These artists were behind the Exoplanet Travel Bureau poster series that was published last year and after its success, they are now releasing a more extensive run of posters, The Verge reported on Tuesday.
The new series known as “Visions of the Future” includes beautiful takes on Europa, Venus, and even Earth and the first three posters of the series were published on Tuesday.
The artists work in a studio that was formed about 13 years ago at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
The JPL design team works closely with NASA scientists and engineers and is in tune with the latest discoveries and biggest mysteries in our solar system.
This proximity allows the artists to come up with a poster theme that revolves around planetary exploration easily.
“Each new poster mixes a bit of that reality with an optimistic take on what exploring our solar system might actually look like someday,” the report said.
For example, while the poster for Venus calls for visitors to come see the “Cloud 9 Observatory”, the poster for Europa advertises the ability to see underwater life — something that does not feel so far-fetched considering the moon is home to a global sub-surface ocean, the report added.
All 14 posters — including the “Exoplanet” series — are now available for download on the JPL website.
