About

PROJECT OVERVIEW

July 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the arrival of Apollo 11 on the Moon, a milestone in human history. In previous projects of my series "Minimal Geography" I have presented several of my designs on maps but on this occasion I wanted to unite two of my passions: cartography and space exploration. That's why now, in addition to remembering the Apollo project, I've thought about creating something different:  an image that brings together the most important spacecrafts in history.

Apollo missions to the Moon (poster detail).

This project consists of a 24x36 inches (60x92 cm) poster that aims to bring together the most important milestones of space exploration to date. The visual approach is based on a conjunction of silhouettes of probes and spacecrafts, accompanied by relevant data from each of them, as well as a color code related to the type of exploration carried out by each of the ships (exploration of the Moon, Mars, planetary probes, Earth orbit...)  

Some of the missions to Mars that appear on the poster.

The set includes both probes sent to the outer planets of the Solar System, as well as exploration ships to the Moon, Mars, Venus and also Space Stations and some of the most important scientific platforms, such as space telescopes. The silhouettes are not shown to scale, but an aesthetic criterion has been followed. The ensemble is intended to be a tribute to the spirit of exploration of humanity in this last frontier: the Universe. 

Poster detail.

The work of collecting data has lasted several weeks and has been particularly complex, more so than on other occasions. I have chosen to select the most relevant missions, as including all spacecraft would have been impossible in a single poster. The result has been revised, but may still contain some small error, so before going to press will be revised again. Below are details of the printing tests carried out, as well as a global image of the poster. If anyone detects any error in the description of any of the probes or spacecraft, I would appreciate your help in correcting it. Thank you all for your support!

Risks and challenges

This is my sixth project at Kickstarter. From my previous experience I have learned how to manage large volumes of shipments and, above all, the need to take care of delivery times and packaging. This time I have a new, high-quality printing supplier and I will use a new shipping system, which will ensure that each poster arrives at its destination undamaged. The posters will be sent inside reinforced cardboard cylinders.

As far as delivery times are concerned, the poster is completely designed. Except for some final changes or corrections, the poster is ready to be printed and sent by post. The funds received in this campaign from Kickstarter are intended primarily to cover the printing process and shipments worldwide.

Given the experience with previous poster campaigns, no special risks are anticipated. However, should a problem arise in the process, backers would be notified promptly.
