NASA Photoshops Its Astronauts Into Popular Film Posters To Cringe-Worthy Effect1 min read

NASA might be known for releasing incredible graphics of the galaxy, including a mind-blowing ultra HD photo of the sun and the first image ever captured from inside the sun’s atmosphere, but elsewhere, the space agency has a mischievous sense of humor that will leave you chuckling.

Since the first International Space Station expedition in 2000, NASA has been making expedition posters starring its crew members. These posters not only hang in NASA’s facilities, but are also used to promote its expeditions.

Instead of continually issuing standard photos, NASA decided to spice things up a little and have a bit of fun. The space agency has photoshopped its astronauts into popular film posters such as Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean, to cringe-worthy yet hilarious effects.

Take a look at some of the graphics below, or see more of these awkward posters on NASA.
