    Hey, awesome post. Thank you. I like these things as well and also ordered the Apollo 11 poster about 10 sec after viewing your post :) I like most "space" things and thinking about the vastness of space kind of calms me down sometimes. I work with environmental impact assessments and sometimes I get pretty sad because of how we are treating this planet. Then it is nice to remember that (some kind of) life is probably abundant in the universe and that humankind can only mess up one planet.

    Here's a blast from the past. My brother obtained this poster during of height of the Apollo excitement, when he was about 11 years old. It was distributed by General Electric Canada. It shows the famous Earth Rise from Moon picture (Apollo 8, in 1968) but I think poster predates the manned landing that occurred just a few months later.

    Another, also discussed by Tufte, an annotated version of the image affixed to Pioneers 10 and 11:
