Space Tourism Posters

NASA is giving away space tourism posters. NASA had the posters designed, presumably to encourage continued interest in the space program. Whatever the purpose, the posters are very cool. Check them all out at the link.

Surprisingly interesting. Pays a bit of homage to Art Deco.

Thanks!

NASA has some of the best stuff! I've been using some of their stuff as wall paper since Rover hit Mars.

A thank you from me, too, Expat, for the link. These look like they'll make good wallpaper for my phone and ebook readers, after I convert the pdfs to jpegs, of course. I've also used a lot of NASA photos for desktop wallpaper, especially deep space images of colorful nebulae. And for interesting photos of our own planet, I subscribe to the Earth image of the day; subscription link is at http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/

According to Arthur Clarke we should have regular flights to the Moon, orbiting hotels and manned missions to the outer planets. What happened?

Posters are one thing but when you can't get there it really doesn't matter.

@KDP: Good question! We don't even have anything that will get us off the ground any more!

What we have is much better knowledge of the conditions there, telling us that unless we learn a great deal more about terraforming, it simply isn't worth the trouble going there in person. And when with current technology, or anything else even remotely feasible in the next half century, even a trip to Mars is going to take years and be a one-way journey, it doesn't really sound all that attractive any more in reality.
