Fans of astronomy and vintage advertisements are sure to enjoy Visions of the Future, a collection of 16 imaginative travel posters created for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). This poster series envisions other parts of our solar system (and beyond) as future travel destinations, advertised here in styles inspired by the iconic Works Project Administration national parks posters from the 1930s and '40s. While our planetary neighbors like Mars and Jupiter are featured, as is Earth itself, the series also encourages intrepid future travelers to vacation on moons such as Titan and Europa, as well as more distant places like the starless "rogue" planet PSO J318.5-22. The posters were painstakingly crafted by a team of nine artists, designers, and illustrators with input from JPL scientists and engineers, as well as from communication experts. Each poster can be downloaded for free as a PDF or a high-resolution TIFF file, both measuring 20 x 30 inches when printed, and clicking an individual poster reveals a short paragraph describing JPL's research on that location.
