NASA's Exoplanet Travel Posters

For the adventurous traveler, I present NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's travel posters, based on Kepler's exoplanet discoveries. We've featured other posters on Neatorama that are stylized in tribute to the government-issued "America Sees" national park travel poster series that ran between 1930 and 1950. These are a great addition to the bunch. We've also seen an artist play with the idea of exoplanet travel, yet the set featured here is the only one issued by NASA.

There are three posters in the series. Each are available for high-resolution download. Verbiage for the poster above reads as follows:

"Kepler-186f is the first Earth-size planet discovered in the potentially 'habitable zone' around another star, where liquid water could exist on the planet's surface. Its star is much cooler and redder than our Sun. If plant life does exist on a planet like Kepler-186f, its photosynthesis could have been influenced by the star's red-wavelength photons, making for a color palette that's very different than the greens on Earth. This discovery was made by Kepler, NASA's planet hunting telescope."

See the other two poster designs and download all three here.
