NASA Invites You to Book a Vacation at These Stunning Exoplanets

These flyers advertise a future of interplanetary space travel.

"Kepler-186f is the first Earth-size planet discovered in the potentially 'habitable zone' around another star, where liquid water could exist on the planet's surface. Its star is much cooler and redder than our Sun.

These posters, which resemble old tourism flyers from the 1930s, beckon you to visit one of three recently discovered alien planets.
