Last year, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) produced some stunning artwork showing the potential destinations of a futuristic galactic explorer. In 2015, the posters were all about interesting exoplanets, and with a bit of artistic license highlighted curious information about those objects.
Now, JPL has released nine new posters about wonderful locations in the Solar System, showcasing the marvel of planets and satellites in our neighborhood. The new posters have the same vintage feeling about them, playing on the theme of retro-futurism.
In every poster’s tag line, there are interesting tidbits of information. They are written in the captivating language of travel posters, but reveal important scientific facts, from potential life in Europa’s ocean to the geysers of Enceladus.
Full size versions can be downloaded on JPL's Visions of the Future website.
