I should have posted my comments on ISS 124.  I like the saying The Mission Continues.  Thanks for sharing.

When I first saw the image in the post, I thought "the 'STS-124' looks like a 'Harry Potter' font".
Only when I saw the larger version could I see that it was indeed a Harry Potter font.  :)

'STS-124 and the Order of Discovery' - not bad!

Really a cool poster, print enough of them and sell them like a bake sale to fund another shuttle mission or two.  It really grabs me, but then again, that is kind of like preaching to the Choir.
Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth...

It has a Harry Potter meets shuttle feel to it :)   But I like that these mission posters are sprouting up again, the last time I saw any around was before STS-107

I agree these should have a wider distribution.  NASA has a terrible PR department--no wonder the average citizen forgets about the space program.  I like the Expedition 16 poster--wonder why they only post a huge 55MB pdf link?  The other posters seem to have a Hi and Lo res version.

MB123 makes a good point. For internal usage it's going to be just about ok but if they actually start issusing these then it's going to be a whole world of legal issues to overcome.

I don't see anything that could generate some legal issues except for the font in STS-124 and perhaps the title "The Order of Discovery" due to the similarity both in the font and the title to the Harry Potter movie. Other than that, I don't see the problem really. This is exactly what NASA needs to get the public interested. These should be issued to schools and the likes all over the U.S. in my opinion.

What do you want on live TV? The poster?

I believe it would be more a question of trademarks rather than copyright. The fact that NASA is promoting a space flight rather than a book or a movie would tend to render the issue void. Now if one called a new movie "The Order of Discovery" using the Harry Potter font then there would be big trouble (and Warner don't mess around when it comes to Harry Potter).

the posters, the way I understand this, are given to NASA employee's and contractors as supporting the program. So, any NASA workers on here who could pick-up  a few for those, like me too, who are interested....can ya?

Or watch Ebay for someone selling them

You could take the Hi-Res version to Kinkos and get a poster sized print made...

The hi res has amazing detail, to the extent that you can see the pumpkin suits are looking a little shabby.

I'd imagine they are nomex material and that has kind of a satin like feel to it... and I know my nomex race suit roughs up easily and I think it gets that pilling in areas that see a lot of movement/rubbing (like the armpits).

Does anyone know if they have multiple pumpkin suits - ones for training & ones for actual mission use?  You'd think they'd want to use their "sunday best" for pictures as well as the mission. Perhaps they only have one suit... if that's the case it must take quite a beating with all the training etc. Anyone know what a pumpkin suit would cost - I'd be it goes along with "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" :)

Hi Res is awesome & the posters are great. Thanks for sharing!!
