NASA has put men on the moon and robots on Mars, which proves there’s some pretty good scientists working there.
But there are some wannabe-artists laboring there too it seems.

The final flight of the space shuttle Endeavor, scheduled for Friday, is no different. The final space shuttle mission, the 135th, will be flown by the crew of Atlantis in June.
NASA began the poster tradition with the 96th shuttle mission in 1999, but really ramped up the Velveeta in 2008.
They were paid for with your tax dollars, so feel free to print a few out and slap them on your wall.
