A delightful critique of the Solar System Prints – Indelible Ink Workshop

I LOVE this- I was gearing myself up to read a post tearing our art apart- which would have been ok, I accept critiques and advice- but it still takes the right mind set- instead, I was met with a great post, done in good humor.  ^_^

Solar System Travel Posters

A lovely set of posters! But the astronomy nerd in me rebels at some of the sights advertised. So get ready for me to ruin the whimsy with my overly analytical evaluation!! (Party and a half!)

So, for a lot of these advertised attractions, it’d be like one of those roadside attractions that says “REAL DINOSAURS!” in advertisements on billboards and then when you get there, it’s just some concrete dinos with really dumb faces and eyebrows painted above their bulbous, staring eyes, the paint peeling off from lack of upkeep. And instead of traveling 20 miles out of your way to see them, you’ve traveled several AU’s to most of them further out beyond earth. So. Yeah.  Gonna be some disappointed Solar System tourists if you want to go skiing on Uranus. ;P

But, if you’re like me…seeing these planets withOUT some of the ‘roadside dino’ attractions would be so worth the trip! I mean, Olympus Mons on Mars…as advertised, would be stunning! And its Valles Marineris is bigger than the Grand Canyon so check that out! As for Jupiter, its moons are truly amazing. Io smells like rotten eggs though and is ridiculously volcanic. Also, Jupiter emits intense radiation so…enjoy that…safety first, kids! But just imagine the sight! And Saturn’s rings…ugh, I could go on and on. But I won’t.

So, gonna pick a bone:

Mercury is like the moon but with crazy temperature fluctuations and a deadly proximity to the sun, which…gives you a front-row seat to view Sol, I guess. But days on Mercury are equivalent to 59 Earth days, so…24-hour tanning salons? More like 1416 hour tanning salons. Aaaaand I wouldn’t recommend that much tanning. Especially not that close to the sun. Besides, the night side of Mercury is intensely cold, even though the planet is close to the sun. But the nights are so long that…yeah, I’m gonna stop myself here concerning Mercury. You get it.

Venus is gonna kill you. Seriously. If you’ve always wanted to experience hell, feel free to stop by! I mean, you could probably suit up or take precautions for the other planets…even Mercury you could *maybe* find a sweet spot between the day and night side *maybe* although the sun is pretty wicked with radiation and whatnot…but Venus? Dead. You’re just gonna die. Baked in a greenhouse-effect-gone-wild atmosphere. So. Talk about false advertising!

Even if Neptune were a watery planet, I wouldn’t want to go because it looks like Rapture and I’m just not comfortable with that scenario. But seriously, Neptune and Uranus are ice giants and are probably really lovely to see…especially if you’re headed out to Pluto, speaking of which…

…..
Pluto: you’re not a planet. Your so-called ‘ice palace’ is totally compensating for your lack of planetary status. I’m sorry. But, son…just don’t. I still love you, but in a non-planet sort of way. You’re still part of the Solar System though! So, conciliatory prize!

But seriously, all science nerd-ery aside, these posters are really awesome and I definitely would hang them up in my apartment. Because they make me smile….like the concept of the future in the 1950s which I love with all my being. They’re very lovely. Forgive my nerdy drivel…I just love space. Can you blame a girl? 🙂

P.S. I know no one actually thinks there’s an ice palace on Pluto. I know it’s all in good fun and for art and humor’s sake. So no one’s allowed to get butthurt ‘cause I like astronomy okay? Okay. =) And if you’re butthurt ‘cause I don’t believe in Pluto being a planet then…son, just don’t. Kisses to make it better!

A lovely set of posters! But the astronomy nerd in me rebels at some of the sights advertised. So get ready for me to ruin the whimsy with my overly analytical evaluation!! (Party and a half!)

So, for a lot of these advertised attractions, it’d be like one of those roadside attractions that says “REAL DINOSAURS!” in advertisements on billboards and then when you get there, it’s just some concrete dinos with really dumb faces and eyebrows painted above their bulbous, staring eyes, the paint peeling off from lack of upkeep. And instead of traveling 20 miles out of your way to see them, you’ve traveled several AU’s to most of them further out beyond earth. So. Yeah.  Gonna be some disappointed Solar System tourists if you want to go skiing on Uranus. ;P

But, if you’re like me…seeing these planets withOUT some of the ‘roadside dino’ attractions would be so worth the trip! I mean, Olympus Mons on Mars…as advertised, would be stunning! And its Valles Marineris is bigger than the Grand Canyon so check that out! As for Jupiter, its moons are truly amazing. Io smells like rotten eggs though and is ridiculously volcanic. Also, Jupiter emits intense radiation so…enjoy that…safety first, kids! But just imagine the sight! And Saturn’s rings…ugh, I could go on and on. But I won’t.

So, gonna pick a bone:

Mercury is like the moon but with crazy temperature fluctuations and a deadly proximity to the sun, which…gives you a front-row seat to view Sol, I guess. But days on Mercury are equivalent to 59 Earth days, so…24-hour tanning salons? More like 1416 hour tanning salons. Aaaaand I wouldn’t recommend that much tanning. Especially not that close to the sun. Besides, the night side of Mercury is intensely cold, even though the planet is close to the sun. But the nights are so long that…yeah, I’m gonna stop myself here concerning Mercury. You get it.

Venus is gonna kill you. Seriously. If you’ve always wanted to experience hell, feel free to stop by! I mean, you could probably suit up or take precautions for the other planets…even Mercury you could *maybe* find a sweet spot between the day and night side *maybe* although the sun is pretty wicked with radiation and whatnot…but Venus? Dead. You’re just gonna die. Baked in a greenhouse-effect-gone-wild atmosphere. So. Talk about false advertising!

Even if Neptune were a watery planet, I wouldn’t want to go because it looks like Rapture and I’m just not comfortable with that scenario. But seriously, Neptune and Uranus are ice giants and are probably really lovely to see…especially if you’re headed out to Pluto, speaking of which…

…..
Pluto: you’re not a planet. Your so-called ‘ice palace’ is totally compensating for your lack of planetary status. I’m sorry. But, son…just don’t. I still love you, but in a non-planet sort of way. You’re still part of the Solar System though! So, conciliatory prize!

But seriously, all science nerd-ery aside, these posters are really awesome and I definitely would hang them up in my apartment. Because they make me smile….like the concept of the future in the 1950s which I love with all my being. They’re very lovely. Forgive my nerdy drivel…I just love space. Can you blame a girl? 🙂

P.S. I know no one actually thinks there’s an ice palace on Pluto. I know it’s all in good fun and for art and humor’s sake. So no one’s allowed to get butthurt ‘cause I like astronomy okay? Okay. =) And if you’re butthurt ‘cause I don’t believe in Pluto being a planet then…son, just don’t. Kisses to make it better!

Sincerely,

I LOVE this- I was gearing myself up to read a post tearing our art apart- which would have been ok, I accept critiques and advice- but it still takes the right mind set- instead, I was met with a great post, done in good humor.  ^_^
