NASA Releases Retro-Themed Travel Posters For Free

The Universe in itself is a so deep terminology. I have always had that fantasy to step onto some different planet other than the Earth and discover those factual truths about them that we have always read in our Science books.

I know many of you must also have the same desire. Either to see those alluring rings that surround the planet Saturn, or to step onto Mars and actually find out how 'red' it is. But before you think this article is something about these fantasies coming true, let me tell you it is not so.

Well yes, for the time being, these retro-style space travel posters from the design studio at NASA's Jet Propulsion Labs will give you a close-up of how life on these planets would be.

Have a look at these 14 amazing posters.

The exoplanet, 51 Pegasi b was discovered in 1995, which is half the mass of Jupiter and has a damn quick orbit of only 4.2 Earth days.

11. Kepler- 16b

11. Kepler- 16b

The Kepler-16b unlike the Sun, orbits a pair of stars. Studies suggest that it may also be gas-giant like Saturn.

12. HD 40307g

12. HD 40307g

About twice as big in volume as the Earth, HD 40307g bestrides the line between 'Super-Earth' and 'Mini- Neptune'.
