Image of the Day: NASA celebrates exoplanet PSO J318.5-22 with retro-future poster

The minds at NASA are always working to find cool new ways to get people excited about space exploration — and who doesn’t like retro future travel posters?

NASA’s (fictional) JPL’s Exoplanet Travel Bureau has put together a stunning poster for Exoplanet PSO J318.5-22, which was discovered approximately two years ago and doesn’t actually orbit a star. So, yeah, it’d be extremely dark and cold. Never-ending night? Then PSI J318.5-22 would have a rocking night life, right?

That’s the clever angle NASA’s artists take on the discovery, dotting the distant planet with a few space stations that almost certainly house some rockin’ clubs. If we weren’t already psyched about space travel, this would do it.

Check out the poster below, and go ahead and book your trip. We’re thinking prices will only be going up for the foreseeable future.
