Fifty Years of Space Exploration

Infographic for Fifty Years of Space Exploration

About this infographic

This is one of the most stunning, attractive and mystical infographics I have seen for a while. In a very artistic way data on the last 50 years of space exploration has been visualized. The top part shows in an easily understandable way where the various space missions have gone, and the way the infographic is designed it’s also very easy to see the relative ‘popularity’ of our close space neighbours in these missions. The scale along the bottom does a great job in visualizing how far the Voyager, Pioneer and New Horizons spacecraft are from Earth.
