Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California has released a series of space tourism posters that offer travel to destinations in the outer space. There are posters promoting travel to planets in the solar system like Mars, Jupiter and Venus and their moon such as Titan and Europa.
Nasa has already released three posters advertising holidays on exoplanets (planets outside the Solar System), which were discovered by the planet hunting space telescope Kepler. JPL released the exoplanet posters in January 2015 to celebrate Kepler discovering its 1,000th exoplanet.
"At Nasa/JPL we strive to be bold in advancing the edge of possibility so that someday, with the help of new generations of innovators and explorers, these visions of the future can become a reality. As you look through these images of imaginative travel destinations, remember that you can be an architect of the future," JPL said in a statement.
The poster promoting adventure on Saturn's largest moon Titan shows three boats with people on-board floating on "rivers and lakes of liquid ethane and methane", according to JPL. The dune-coloured poster features a huge yellow Saturn in backdrop.
Nasa promotes Jupiter as a surreal place for flying in a hot air balloon as the planet's auroras paint the skies. "Jupiter's auroras are hundreds of times more powerful than Earth's, and they form a glowing ring around each pole that's bigger than our home planet. Revolving outside this auroral oval are the glowing, electric 'footprints' of Jupiter's three largest moons," it said.
A poster of Jupiter's moon Europa highlights its geology. Beneath its icy surface, Europa is believed to conceal a global ocean of salty liquid water, which has twice the volume of Earth's oceans, it said. Nasa's Europa mission will be head out in the 2020s.
All the posters come with a valuable information piece on the subject. Interestingly, the latest series even features a poster of the Earth. It features a man holding a woman as they view the spectacular landscapes.
"There's no place like home. Warm, wet and with an atmosphere that's just right, Earth is the only place we know of with life – and lots of it," JPL said.
All the posters are now available for download from JPL's website.
