NASA released travel posters to real exoplanets, and they’re wonderful

The hunt for exoplanets (or extra solar planets) able to potentially sustain human life rages on, and with NASA’s Kepler telescope, the odds may be turning in our favour.

With more and more findings being made every day, NASA released this series of travel posters to some of the (very real) exoplanets they have found recently. At many, many light-years away from Earth, you probably won’t be booking your tickets anytime soon, but to imagine that they are out there might very well be more than enough for now.

Putting aside a little savings, just in case, doesn’t seem like too bad of an idea though, does it?

The image below has all the information summarised, along with low resolution copies of the posters. Save it to your computer for later consideration, or to convince the wife of the travel plans if the day ever comes. The high resolution posters are available via the link at the bottom of the page.
