Imagine travelling around space was considered the same as backpacking around Europe. Travel agents trying to persuade you with their brochures of iconic landmarks in Paris, Barcelona and now Mars and Venus.
NASA has done just that and has created a collection of sci-fi posters showcasing space travel of the future.
“These interplanetary travel posters envision a day when the creativity of scientists and engineers will allow us to do things we can only dream of now,” it said.
Picture travelling around Jupiter on hot air balloon, or exploring the “historic sites” of Mars. There’s even the Grand Tour which offers “a once in a lifetime getaway.”
One of the most interesting posters for us is actually Earth as it implies we won’t be living there in the future. Earth is seen as an oasis in our solar system, much like we would consider the mountains of Switzerland or Hawaii today.
