NASA Teases Space Tourism with Retro Travel Advertisements

“You’re now free to move about the galaxy.”

The California Institute of Technology’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has produced an awesome series of forward-looking travel advertisements. The poster-sized images depict possible travel destinations including 51 Pegasi b (the first exoplanet found to orbit a sun-like star) and rogue planet PSO J318.5-22, along with more familiar, “local” bodies like Jupiter and its moon Europa.

The promotional images are part of a 20th anniversary celebration for NASA’s Exoplanet Exploration Program, which also features a “travel bureau” website with some fun interactive stuff for the kids.

Me? I’m packing a bag for a trip to Saturn’s moon Enceladus and those ice jets. Sure, it’s a bag built to hold an urn containing my ashes, as it’s nearly certain I won’t be getting to space in my lifetime, but it’s mostly packed. Let me know when the ship is leaving, NASA.
