NASA Releases Retro Travel Posters Playfully Encouraging Space Tourism

For adventure seekers, beautiful travel posters offer a glimpse of life somewhere new and exciting. By depicting gorgeous locales, it inspires a sense of wanderlust in even the most travel-averse person. With this in mind, theNASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has created a series of posters for different destinations in our solar system. The fantastical illustrations depict a future where space travel is a common occurrence and trips across the galaxy are just a rocket ride away.


These pixelated versions of everyday objects looks like they’re made of LEGO bricks, but they’re actually works of ceramic sculpture created by Japanese artist Toshiya Masuda. For a playful series entitled Low Pixel Masuda has sculpted everything from a fried egg and a pair of running shoes to a life-size tricycle, a cigarette burning in an ashtray, and wilting flowers. Each sculpture is a tangible work of art that looks like it would blend right into the background of an 8-bit video games.
