From the Way Back Machine--Vintage Space!

This vintage poster was featured February 26, 2015 on the National Archives It's a blast from the space-age past: A poster from 1965, featuring a space explorer traversing a distant world, was unearthed from the National Archives and posted online on Feb. 26.

The awesomely retro print is dated Feb. 26, 1965, and it captures the aesthetic of space-based art at the time - it looks as if it could be the cover of a 1960's science fiction novel.

The poster is advertising NASA's traveling space-education program "the Spacemobile." These mobile outreach units would travel to schools and events to tell students and members of the public about space sciences and the work being done by NASA.
