NASA Space Tourism Posters

This isn’t exactly techmology or scientism. I think it’s really more technologyish and scienceyish, but here’s the article title and link:

“NASA releases even more off its fantastical space tourism posters”

I’m far from being an expert, but it looks to me like these posters were intentionally done in the ‘Art Deco style’.

Yeah, looks like.  Personally, I just would've cut the middle man out and hired Syd Mead.  The man's influenced pretty much every conception we have of a sci-fi future, from Mass Effect to Blade Runner to Alien to Tron to Elysium and Tomorrowland to friggin Star Trek.

I love these. The Mars one is my favorite, I think.
