Exotic Vacation Destinations, part four

NASA recently released travel posters for a few of the many planets discovered in the last few years, as Mr. Valentine noted while discussing his vacation plans yesterday. In case you haven’t read those blog entries here and here, this is an example, courtesy of NASA/JPL-Caltech:


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 like Kepler-186f, its photosynthesis could have been influenced by the star’s red-wavelength photons, making for a color palette that’s very different than the greens on Earth.


PlanetQuest has identified 1804 confirmed planets outside our solar system, and another 3199 deep space objects that are candidates for planethood, for a grand total of 5003 exo-planets! That makes vacation planning hard, you must agree.

To make it even harder, I’ve created posters for some of my own science fictional vacation destinations.

On which planet would you like to vacation? Drop me a line or a comment and I’ll see if I can arrange passage. I’ll see if I can get Dr. Who as your tour guide to the future…for a price, of course.  🙂
