The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.

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.

As immigrant children we’ve seen our parents struggle to plant their feet firmly on this foreign ground. They travelled to a land where they knew not a soul, where the language felt awkward in their mouths, where even the weather became their torturers. As immigrant children…
Septa detail in an ammonite.
Septa are the walls of the chambers of the shell. They were filled with seawater or air to change elevation.
The process of fossilization is done through mineral replacement. Pyrite can replace the septa of an ammonite, as seen above. This ammonite is likely to have been treated with bismuth, causing the rainbow color of the crystals.
Visit Planet Earth Campaign by Bri Hand
Despite the possibility of literally one brajillion sentient lifeforms out there, we’ve so far discovered it’s pretty lonely in the big, cold Universe. And while our attempts at interstellar communication have sought to connect with extraterrestrials through the universal religion of science and mathematics, you’ve really got to wonder why we didnt play up our personal traits here on Serious Planet Earth: for instance, hot dogs. Everything recreated in Minecraft. Conga lines. The fact that David Bowie sometimes lives here. Bri’s ad campaign seeks to invigorate our languishing interstellar tourism industry by luring aliens in with some of Earth’s more amazing amenities (and hopefully the promise that we’re not going to autopsy them and show it on FOX). You can check out more assets of the campaign over at Bri’s website: secrethidingplaceofbrihand
