Back in my youth I'd watch sci-fi shows and see people wearing skintight silver lycra spacesuits, robots cleaning the house and imagine that I'd one day ride a hoverboard. Alas that future has yet to come however Imagination is our window into the future. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, have created a series of posters advertising trips and excursions to 14 alien worlds. These futuristic tourism posters are exciting, bold and intriguing and would make an interesting stimulus for writing. Coupled alongside a space exploration computer game (Elite Dangerous or Eve Online for example) and you could create a real contextual hub for learning. JPL have made these posters available for download for free so why not give it a try and stimulate the pupils in your class! In JPL's own words
Imagination is our window into the future. At NASA/JPL we strive to be bold in advancing the edge of possibility so that someday, with the help of new generations of innovators and explorers, these visions of the future can become a reality. As you look through these images of imaginative travel destinations, remember that you can be an architect of the future.
