Have you known that NASA has a very interesting tradition of creating cool posters after each expedition to the ISS? They all are made in the style of movie posters and look really impressive. We will show you the best of them!
Some of the posters naturally allude to popular blockbusters about space like “Star Wars” or “The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy” while others hint unexpectedly at such movies as “Pirates of the Caribbean” or “The Matrix”, or even at the famous “Abbey Road” – the twelfth music album by the Beatles. Very creative, isn't it?
