Keep Track of Every Mission Throughout The Solar System With This Handy Map

There’s been dozens of probes that have gone out exploring the solar system since 1959’s Luna 2 probe. PopChartLab has gone and noted down each one since in this beautiful poster of the Solar System.

From the Luna 2 in 1959 to the DSCOVR in 2015, this color-coded chart traces the trajectories of every orbiter, lander, rover, flyby, and impactor to ever slip the surly bonds of Earth’s orbit and successfully complete its mission—a truly astronomical array of over 100 exploratory instruments in all

Here’s the entire poster:

The top half shows where the general path of every probe out there, with each line numbered. The bottom half shows what each probe looks like, and is sorted by whatever planet it was assigned to explore.

The poster will be available on March 22nd – you can preorder it here.
