NASA GOES RETRO ON SUPER PLANETS

NASA has put a retro spin on some of the Universe’s most gigantic wonders. A throwback to artwork and poster ads from the 1960s, NASA has released three unique pieces featuring: the Kepler-16b, HD 40307g and Kepler-186f. 

Kepler 3

The Kepler-16b, a planet that has a temperature similar to dry ice, is “The Land of Two Suns.” For those, who don’t know about the intricacies of studio lighting, this not only gives you a beautiful double-sunset, but two personal shadows.

Twice as big in volume as the Earth, HD 40307g straddles the line between "Super-Earth" and "mini-Neptune" and scientists aren't sure if it has a rocky surface or one that's buried beneath thick layers of gas and ice. One thing is certain though: at eight

The HD 40307g is a “Super-Earth” that is 8x the Earth’s mass and who’s gravitational pull is “Super-Strong.” Talk about having an accelerated parachuting experience.

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. If plant life does exist on a planet li

The Kepler-186f, a planet the size of Earth that has the potential for life to strive, and where red wavelength photons create red lighting that litters land and sky.

Whether you’re into the wonders of Space or a fan of the art world, these releases from NASA are out of this world. Pun intended.
