The Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology created 14 posters that are free to the public to download, print and hang. Called “Visions of the Future, the series pulls in a vintage feel with fonts and designs but also projects into the future by featuring potential planets for tourism, including exotic exoplanets — planets that orbit other stars. Nine artists, designers and illustrators, dubbed “The Studio” at JPL, created the posters with feedback from NASA scientists and engineers. Check out the stories behind each poster and then download the high resolution copies, which are sized 20×30 — perfect poster size.
