Designed color posters like vintage horror movie commercials highlight the terrifying effects of the universe recently released by NASA’s Exoplanet Exploration office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
The posters can be downloaded for free from NASA’s website and are also available in Spanish.
The poster appears just in time for Halloween and sheds light on the dangers and secrets of the entire universe. The agency has also released a Sound Cloud playlist that features the scary sounds of space.
Previous posters have highlighted the wonders of our own solar system, as well as potentially habitable exoplanets or planets outside of our solar system that envision how people might one day travel to these distant places. Is.
However, the phenomenon depicted on these posters is even more terrible.
Posters combine imaginative artistic presentations with interesting science. They have been supporting teams of artists and scientists since 2014.
NASA’s latest addition, Horror of the Galaxy poster collection, includes fictional dark objects, a deadly gamma-ray burst, and a “galactic graveyard”.
The Galactic Cemetery poster shows an ancient galaxy in which the star’s birth abruptly ceased a few years later. Now it’s a graveyard of burning stars, and only the small and red stars shine bright red.
“Dare to enter and you can face the creepy corpses or the ultimate death of a once mighty star,” the JPL headline reads.
The poster “Gamma Ray Ghol” shows what happens when dead stars collide: A gamma ray bursts. It’s one of the most powerful explosions in the universe.
“These rays of doom release their wretched atmosphere, a million trillion times brighter than the sun for 3 million terrifying seconds. No space travel will save you from the blind destruction of the gamma-ray spirit! “Says the text on this poster.
And then there is dark matter. This invisible gravity provides the structure for the universe, but scientists do not know who it is made of and have been trying for years to find a “particle” of dark matter.
“One of the things I really like about these posters is that if you study art for a while and then maybe learn a little more about all of these subjects, you can see that the artists have put a lot of thought into it.” Jason Rhodes, an astronomer at the University of California at Berkeley who was consulting on the project said in a statement:
For example, the spider web used in the dark matter poster is a clever reference to the cosmic web structure of the universe that connects galaxies together, which we cannot see.
The gamma ray poster shows the risk of a collision between a dead star and its energy king.
Judy Rakusin, an astronomer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, explained in a discussion about the posters how rare gamma rays are – so they are unlikely to affect Earth.
According to Nag, a gamma ray foot occurs in our galaxy only once every 10,000 years, but they only appear to us every 10 to 100 million years.
“Poster art is a fun way to imagine one of these events.” “But I don’t want to be that astronaut!”
