SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is infamous for his vision of human colonies on Mars where he is now under contract with NASA to develop spacecraft for the first astronauts to live on Mars. 

However, living on the Red Planet may seem such an obvious alien concept to most humans, this is why SpaceX released a series of travel posters to Mars reminiscent of retro travel posters from the 1950s.

The three posters were revealed on the SpceX Flickr account where they each present Mars as the next home planet for humans that can be easily visited tomorrow unlike other space travel posters depicting the distant future.

The first poster presents an astronaut with a jetpack flying over and exploring Valles Marineris which is a 2,500 mile stretch of Martian canyons where he is coming home to his family over a cliff among the canyons with some futuristic caravan.

This canyon system is so massive, it measures 120 miles wide and goes 23,000 feet deep below the surface where scientists believe that this colossal canyon is generated by an ancient tectonic plate. To date, this is the largest canyon system ever known in the entire solar system.

The second poster reveals a man and a woman looking far away through a huge window, possibly within a biodome environment, where they are enjoying the night sky with the two Martian moons of Phobos and Deimos visible over the sky, whose faces are tidally locked to the alien world.

The third poster depicts a man and woman riding a space gondola, excited to reach the summit of Olympus Mons, which is the highest peak on Mars, that is three times the size of Mount Everest. Only the most daring explorers will try to seek out adventure by climbing to the highest mountain on the Red Planet.

Although the posters do not readily depict Mars as a suitable living environment for human settlement, SpaceX still wants to heighten the curiosity of many with this truly exotic space tourist destination.
