Even More Visions of the Future

You’ve seen the planets, now let’s look at some of the best moons to visit in the solar system, ala the romanticized art deco style!

Ceres is like a gas station for that long trip to Jupiter, treated as an icy rock that is not the best tourist destination.  Enceladus is a lot like the spacefarer’s version of Yellowstone park, with the southern hemisphere geysers being the appeal.

My two favourites are Titan and Europa.  Titan’s colour scheme and view of Saturn are gorgeous, but the best part is the paddle boats in the hydrocarbon seas.  The most interesting visit is to the deep seas of Europa, where amazing colonies remind me of something like the world of Rapture from the video game Bioshock.

I dream of a future where we can visit these wonderful places. Seeing amazing new photos and learning more about the nearby worlds of our solar system, I can feel myself floating in a spaceship high above them.  It may be the closest I will ever get in the real world, but posters like this give me a trip of the imagination.  And for me, right now, this is just fine!
