SPACE TRAVEL POSTER - 008/060
CHECK OUT THE REST OF THE SERIES .. HERE

THE PROJECT
Space tourism is still a long ways off, but it’s not hard to imagine that someday, tourists will visit the natural geological landmarks of other worlds much like they tour the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest or Ayers Rock. Each of these great tourist destinations needs a classic retro travel poster to entice visitors. Until the day people settle off world and make their own destinations many of these may be the places that people will want to travel too. I hope that these posters can inspire people to think beyond our world to the limitless possibilities of the Universe.

CALORIS BASIN
Also called Caloris Planitia, is a large impact crater on Mercury about 1,550 km (960 mi) in diameter, one of the largest impact basins in the solar system. Caloris is Latin for heat and the basin is so-named because the Sun is almost directly overhead every second time Mercury passes perihelion. The crater, discovered in 1974, is surrounded by a ring of mountains approximately 2 km (1.2 mi) tall.

You're doing a lot of these very distinct posters. Is it for anything? Or just for fun?
