NASA’s own exoplanet travel posters

NASA’s own series of exoplanet travel posters

How about these beautiful pieces of poster artwork commissioned by NASA themselves to help inspire a generation to stay on board with the space discovery missions being run by NASA. Commissioned to look like art deco 1930’s era classic poster-work they certainly evoke memories of some classic science fiction artwork and could easily adorn any boys bedroom wall (and even their dad’s!)

There are brief descriptions of each on NASA California Jet Propulsion website here (where hi-res TIFF versions are also available to download) but the artwork really speaks for itself.
