The discovery of these waves has several implications. In an “Explain Like I’m 5” subreddit post, reddit user Astrokiwi elaborated on the ramifications of the discovery. For one, this confirms that Albert Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity is correct when it predicted the existence of these waves. It could also provide a different window into the nature of the Universe.

With this discovery and the efforts of space agencies such as NASA and SpaceX, space travel is no longer just confined within the pages of science fiction novels. It is a reality.

And along with that reality is the possibility of space tourism.

The National Aeronautics and Space Agency’s Jet Propulsion Lab released a series of retro-futuristic posters for interplanetary travel and that they are “booking tours now”.

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.

The posters are created by The Studio at JPL, a design and strategy team that working with JPL scientists and engineers to visualize complex science and technology topics.
