NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has just come out with a few interplanetary travel posters under a new series called 'Vision of the Future', which are a work of sheer ingenuity.
"Imagination is our window into the future. New travel posters envision a day when the creativity of scientists and engineers will allow us to do things we can only dream of now. Take a trip to 14 alien worlds via the new, futuristic space tourism posters," the organization said in a Facebook post.
Each poster also has a tagline like â€śVenusâ€”See You At The Cloud 9 Conservatory,â€ť and "Europa - Discover life under the ice" and â€śKepler186fâ€”Where The Grass Is Always Redder On The Other Side.â€ť
A report in CNN adds:
Three of the posters were created by Seattle-based design and illustration studio Invisible Creature. Influenced by post-war WPA propaganda and vintage travel posters, one of the prints shows what it would be like to visit a Mars colony, complete with cultivated crops and water. Riffing on European voyages of the past, in another design, the studio invites would-be tourists on a 'Grand Tour' -- a once-in-a-lifetime alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune; and the explosive geysers on Enceladus.
Speaking to Mashable, Don Clark, one of the designers behind the project said "My goal with these was that people would want to hang them up and that they were beautiful and that they lived up to the standard that is NASA."
