amazing free download-able art!

Titan - JPL Travel Poster
Amazing free printable alert! My husband called me over to "show me something cool" this morning, and that usually means he's found either a picture of an animal so weird it should not exist or an epic Ron Swanson meme, but today what he had to show me was really worth the trip across the kitchen....
What he had found was and amazing series of "travel posters" for trips to places like Venus, Mars and Titan, released bu NASA/JPL. The colours are amazing, the vibe is very Jules Vern, and they are free to download, poster-size. I am currently trying to think of places to put them all, but one or two will definitely end up in the playroom, and "Venus" is now the inspiration for my ensuite.

They are so amazing, I love them all, and I especially love the thought behind them, which is: 

"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."

Having recently seen Chris Hadfield give a particularly inspirational talk on this exact subject this find is very timely :)
