Space Posters

So I have two small kids.  Ever since I took my older child out to watch the International Space Station fly over head she’s been fascinated with space.  I’m all for this.  So since then I’ve been occasionally taking NASA imagery, which we all have reproduction rights to, and making them into posters for her room.  This my latest one.  I’m also making my space posters available for sale, in case it’s of any help to any other parents.  They’re printed on photo paper and shipped directly from the lab.  Click here.

A model of the moon from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been inserted into the picture, showing how perfectly the moon's true topology fits into the shadow observed by SDO.
