Following NASA's series Space Posters , they recently released a new series entitled: Visions of the Future. From what I was aware of, I've never seen NASA giving so many beautiful opportunities to makers and creators. For this case they thought about sharing a graphical tribute to the Grand Tour, the Mars Exploration Program and more. It's a dear pleasure to go through the collection, learn more about the story behind the art and being able to download a fullscale digital poster copy. Imagination is our window into the future. At NASA/JPL we strive to be bold in advancing the edge of possibility so that someday, with the help of new generations of innovators and explorers, these visions of the future can become a reality. As you look through these images of imaginative travel destinations, remember that you can be an architect of the future.

A couple of weeks ago NASA made the photos of the project Apollo available for the public on their Flickr account. I have been planning to post about that since I saw that but for some reasons I kept forgetting but today I didn't and here are some samples for the incredible set that you should go and spend hours checking them out. The Apollo program, also known as Project Apollo, was the third United States human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which accomplished landing the first humans on the Moon from 1969 to 1972. First conceived during Dwight D. Eisenhower's administration as a three-man spacecraft to follow the one-man Project Mercury which put the first Americans in space, Apollo was later dedicated to President John F. Kennedy's national goal of "landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth" by the end of the 1960s, which he proposed in a May 25, 1961, address to Congress. Project Mercury was followed by the two-man Project Gemini (1962–66). The first manned flight of Apollo was in 1968. - Wikepedia For the full set make sure to check out https://www.flickr.com/photos/projectapolloarchive/
This week one of the most anticipated movies of the year for me will open in theaters. Interstellar by Chris Nolan. In the movie a group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. The images from the previews are, in a word, stunning. I look forward to watching it this Friday. For this post I selected a few inspiring outer space images to get acclimated with the subject, which by the way is the inspiration behind Abduzeedo's name.
Yesterday, I took some time off to watch Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity movie and it’s totally mind-blowing. If you haven’t watched it yet, it’s a must see. With the hype from the movie, I did some researchs on NASA and found this beautiful series of images released by NASA showing the Real-Life from Space. You can see astronauts working at the International Space Station and more. Links More info about NASA: http://www.nasa.gov Follow them on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gsfc Via Flickr
NASA is definitely the owner of some of the greatest pictures ever taken. Whether from our planet or from outer space, these images are just breathtaking and make you wish you could travel through the stars. Maybe sometime soon we're gonna be able to take a daily ride to the moon, but until that day comes, all we can do is check these exceptional pictures that NASA got in their flickrstream. For more of these great images, visit their page. I hope you enjoy these.
