Relax on Kepler-16b - Where Your Shadow Always Has Company - NASA JPL Space Travel Poster
The Visions of the Future posters, from the NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, promote travel to planets and moons. Equal parts retro-chic and sheer design genius these museum-quality posters made on thick, durable, matte paper. Yielding highly saturated images, while maintaining excellent highlight and shadow detail, this poster will be a statement in any room.
Printed in America, sweatshop free, on archival, acid-free paper. Ships with or without a frame.
The poster depicts an astronaut emerging from a valley on planet Kepler-16b, standing and enjoying a double sunset view, with two shadows behind him.
"Like Luke Skywalker's planet "Tatooine" in Star Wars, Kepler-16b orbits a pair of stars. Depicted here as a terrestrial planet, Kepler-16b might also be a gas giant like Saturn. Prospects for life on this unusual world aren't good, as it has a temperature similar to that of dry ice. But the discovery indicates that the movie's iconic double-sunset is anything but science fiction."
