50 years of space exploration in a giant poster

500x_50-years-exploration-big

National Geographic released an amazing gigantic online infographic depicting our humankind’s exploration of space over the past 50 years. The geekier corners of the Internet, including this one (being a geek is a badge of honor, friends! Or at least that’s what I told myself while growing up) went predictably agog over this. There have been 9 missions to the sun. Maybe SUNfiltered can count as the 10th? Also, there’s only been one mission to Uranus. [Insert Beavis and Butthead's juvenile HA HA laughter here.]
