Infographics/Posters



From the Earth to the Heavens Poster - Long strip
From the Earth to the Heavens Poster - Long strip
2010
Dimensions: 12" x 45"
There are patterns of beauty across Earth and throughout the Universe. This poster invites you to compare aerial photographs of our planet taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand to X-ray images of the cosmos taken by NASAs Chandra X-ray Observatory. We hope these pairings provide an intriguing new way to view the striking visual patterns made by these very different objects.
