Star Fleet

From the first bleep of Sputnik to the amazing imagery of space telescopes, our presence in the solar system is an ever-widening orbit. From the Luna 2 (1959) to the DSCOVR (2015), this color-coded chart traces the trajectories of every orbiter, lander, rover, and rocket-riding vehicle from the Space Race and beyond—over 100 pieces of exploratory hardware in all. Featuring detailed renderings of each spacecraft juxtaposed with a roadmap of our solar system, it's a stellar survey that offers a fascinating overview of extraterrestrial travel. Designed by Ben Gibson and Patrick Mulligan in Brooklyn, New York.

Ben Gibson and Patrick Mulligan strive to "connect the dots" by compiling complicated data sets on a given topic of interest and then devising a graphic way to display it beautifully. They met while working at a publishing company, where Ben was a designer and Patrick was an editor. Both collaborated with authors to bring ideas to the printed page, but they had yet to work on anything that was fully their own. Their independent products combine deep research with beautiful design to take the head-spinning data of today's world and transform it into something clean, elegant, and comprehensive.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Cosmic Exploration Chart:

      The whole family enjoys learning about space exploration and this is a fantastic learning tool. We find it especially fun to compare the nations. The only complaint is that it's one inch narrower than a standard large poster frame. It still looks very impressive on the wall, though!

      Fascinating for wall art and fun to study. The poster is a quality print, archival and on card-stock. I thought it was pricey when purchased but when I saw it on arrival, knew it was worth the expense. Whole family loves it too. It's made it to our living room.
