NASA Releases Space Travel Posters of New Sister Solar System #ArtTuesday

Let’s face it: with the topsy-turvy political climate, many of us probably dream of jetting off to a land far, far away. And, with the recent discovery of seven Earth-sized planets—some of which may be inhabitable—the feeling of intergalactic wanderlust is at an all-time high. Called TRAPPIST-1, the “sister solar system” is a mere 39 light-years away,  and three of the planets could contain alien life if they have Earth-like atmospheres. Knowing that this incredible finding is the perfect fodder for those who envision exploring the galaxy, NASA went all-out on marking the occasion. They created a whole website dedicated to TRAPPIST-1, including space travel posters.

 

The TRAPPIST-1-inspired works were created by NASA and Amanda J. Smith. Like NASA’s previous retro posters, the most striking image of the series paints a colorful picture of what it’d be like to venture to the solar system. Cloaked in a gradient of supple reds, purples, and blues, it features a silhouetted family observing the landscape via a train window. Their excitement is palpable, and coupled with tagline “Voted best ‘Hab Zone’ Vacation,” it makes us wish this poster was real.
