NASA Needs You - To Work on Mars!
NASA has just released these retro-style recruitment posters to attract youth from across the world for a Mars mission. The retro-futurist posters show cartoon astronauts at work on Mars and the Moon.
Over seven years ago, these posters were designed for an exhibition, but have now been released online. All to get recruits for some adventurous expeditions in the vast and unending universe, particularly Mars.
And not just astronauts or pilots, they need farmers, teachers, surveyors and assembly line technicians. Pretty much anyone, in fact. Already more than 18,000 people seem to have taken up the challenge (or opportunity ?!).
Millions of miles from Earth, Mars is hardly a welcoming place. Lacking in atmosphere, covered in a chemical haze toxic to the human body, it's not a place you'd go to on a holiday. The Red Planet isn't for tourists - it's for explorers.
