By announcing the discovery of potentially habitable planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system, NASA gave us some of the coolest news of 2017.

In a press conference on Wednesday, NASA shared its discovery of seven Earth-sized planets, three of which are in the “habitable zone” of orbit around the TRAPPIST-1 star.

To celebrate this exciting discovery, NASA commissioned a series of very snazzy posters illustrating the similarities with our own solar system and advertising TRAPPIST-1 as a travel destination.
