One thing about space science posters is they are usually not designed very well. You see them in high schools or universities and often use back-dated images from missions dating back 30 years… or worse… they are badly illustrated with no relation to what these bodies actually look like. For this reason, I had always thought it would be a great project to make some well-designed posters of the planets that feature the amazing images we now have of them from modern missions.
Sure enough someone comes along and knocks the whole system out in one fantastic series. They are each available for sale, but the funny thing about doing one for each planet is that you will not likely have too many takers for Uranus or even Pluto. However, the design on some of these makes it pretty tempting to grab them up just for the pretty.
I would be a rube to not include Saturn. But the exclusion of the Galileans at Jupiter, no Charon on the Pluto poster and the absence of Titan here on the Saturn poster has me wondering if there is a moon series in the works? If so, put me down for a copy of Io.
