    Original artworks from NASA

    There is no place like home. Warm, wet and with an atmosphere that's just right, Earth is the only place we know of with life - and lots of it. JPL's Earth science missions monitor our home planet and how it's changing so it can continue to provide a safe haven as we reach deeper into the cosmos.

    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is an autonomous organization of the United States Federal Government liable for the regular citizen space program and aeronautics and space research. NASA was set up in 1958, succeeding the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). Since its foundation, most US space investigation endeavors have been driven by NASA, including the Apollo Moon landing missions, the Skylab space station, and the Space Shuttle.

  • Venus

    NASA

    Original artworks from NASA

    The rare science opportunity of planetary transits has long inspired bold voyages to exotic vantage points - journeys such as James Cook's trek to the South Pacific to watch Venus and Mercury cross the face of the Sun in 1769. Spacecraft now allow us the luxury to study these cosmic crossings at times of our choosing from unique locales across our solar system.

  • Romeo and Juliet

    Illustrations

    The Strobridge Lithographing Company was a maker of advertisement posters and lithographs founded in 1847 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company is named after Hines Strobridge who only joined the then stationery store in 1854 when it was known as Middleton, Wallace and Company, after its founding partners E. C. Middleton and W. R. Wallace. In 1859, the company changed its name to Middleton, Strobridge and Company.

  • Kepler16b

    NASA

    Original artworks from NASA

    Like Luke Skywalker's planet "Tatooine" in Star Wars, Kepler-16b orbits a pair of stars. Depicted here as a terrestrial planet, Kepler-16b might also be a gas giant like Saturn. Prospects for life on this unusual world aren't good, as it has a temperature similar to that of dry ice. But the discovery indicates that the movie's iconic double-sunset is anything but science fiction.

  • Peg51

    NASA

    Original artworks from NASA

    While there is much debate over which exoplanet discovery is considered the "first," one stands out from the rest. In 1995, scientists discovered 51 Pegasi b, forever changing the way we see the universe and our place in it. The exoplanet is about half the mass of Jupiter, with a seemingly impossible, star-hugging orbit of only 4.2 Earth days. Not only was it the first planet confirmed to orbit a sun-like star, it also ushered in a whole new class of planets called Hot Jupiters: hot, massive planets orbiting closer to their stars than Mercury.

  • Jupiter

    NASA

    Original artworks from NASA

    The Jovian cloudscape boasts the most spectacular light show in the solar system, with northern and southern lights to dazzle even the most jaded space traveler. Jupiter’s auroras are hundreds of times more powerful than Earth’s, and they form a glowing ring around each pole that’s bigger than our home planet. Revolving outside this auroral oval are the glowing, electric “footprints” of Jupiter’s three largest moons. This poster depicts passengers floating in balloons viewing the auroras across Jupiter's landscape.

  • Trappist 1E

    NASA

    Original artworks from NASA

    Some 40 light-years from Earth, a planet called TRAPPIST-1e offers a heart-stopping view: brilliant objects in a red sky, looming like larger and smaller versions of our own moon. But these are no moons. They are other Earth-sized planets in a spectacular planetary system outside our own. These seven rocky worlds huddle around their small, dim, red star, like a family around a campfire. Any of them could harbor liquid water, but the planet shown here, fourth from the TRAPPIST-1 star, is in the habitable zone, the area around the star where liquid water is most likely to be detected. This system was revealed by the TRAnsiting Planets and PlanetIsmals Small Telescope (TRAPPIST) and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

  • PSO J318

    NASA

    Original artworks from NASA

    Located approximately 80 light-years away in the constellation Capricornus, PSO J318.5-22 has a mass only six times that of Jupiter. It belongs to a collection of young stars called the Beta Pictoris moving group that formed about 12 million years ago. The object was discovered in 2013 in images taken by the Pan-STARRS PS1 wide-field telescope.

    Original artworks from NASA

    Enceladus discoveries have changed the direction of planetary science. A masterpiece of deep time and wrenching gravity, the tortured surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus and its fascinating ongoing geologic activity tell the story of the ancient and present struggles of one tiny world.

    Breakfast at Tiffany's was a musical with music and lyrics by Bob Merrill and a book originally by Abe Burrows but rewritten during pre-Broadway tryouts by Edward Albee. It is based on the 1958 Truman Capote novella and 1961 film of the same name about a free spirit named Holly Golightly. The artwork shows the character of Holly Golightly carrying bread, a guitar, and a shopping bag with a cat.
