We love sci-fi. We are fascinated by space and thrilled by the prospect of travelling to Mars someday and we love art. And so, it is only natural that we fell right in love with SpaceX Mars Tourism Posters. And they are not just any posters. That exciting prospect is pitched in 100 percent retro flair – like something you will see in the sci-fi movies of the 60s which incidentally, was the height of the space race. Anyways, it will be quite a while before travelling or colonizing the Red Planet is even possible and even so, we are undaunted and wonder what it will be like to be zipping up to the summit of Olympus Mons in pod-like cable cars and imagine the exhilaration of getting to the camping ground within Valles Marineris in a jetpack. And how about that space-age cruise aboard the Moons of Mars? That sounds pretty intriguing too.
While we are excited as we have said and admits that SpaceX’s posters are artistically beautiful and works to spur our imaginations, we doubt there is anything actually pretty to see on the Red Planet (we are not interested in dust storm that last for weeks and deprive the planet of the sun) and even if it has the beauty for me to admire, I wouldn’t have enjoyed immensely with a helmet and breathing apparatus stuck to my head and that’s not to mention the spacesuit one has to wear in order not to perish there. So, yeah. We love Mars, but for now, we will continue to imagine the foreseeable problems settling there can actually be solved, which we perhaps start with not having to take eight months to get there. In the mean time, enjoy the awesome posters and oh, you can actually download and print it out for your own use if you want to. We might. This place needs some inspiration and these posters could be it.
