The people at NASA do amazing work, and even though our space program isn't what it used to be, I still want to travel the stars someday and see other planets. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory commissioned design agency Invisible Creatures to create a series of travel posters titled "Visions of the Future" for hypothetical destinations. The results are spectacular.
Their blog post on the subject hits you with the mission right off the bat:
“Imagination is our window into the future. As you mark the passing of this year with these imaginative destinations, remember that you are the architects of the future. What we make and do will have a profound significance for generations to come. The impact of your efforts go beyond 2020, or even 2050. They will be felt for centuries to come. Be bold in your vision of what tomorrow can be, advance the edge of possibility, and let’s work together to make it come true.”
– NASA JPL Director Charles Elachi
Better yet, you can buy these posters right now, so you can decorate your own home with NASA goodies. Sure, maybe we're not heading to the moon yet, but when we do, we'll have some great travel posters to use for inspiration.
