We've come a long way since 1959. Pop Chart Lab's stellar Chart of Cosmic Exploration takes us through the history of man's, and man-made machines', adventures in space. The poster lays out the solar system across the upper portion of its 39" spread, and then traces in color-coded paths 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. From the Luna 2 to 2015's DSCOVR, and over 100 in total.

Along the lower half of the chart you can check out hand-illustrated renderings of each spacecraft that made the trek, categorized by planet explored, type of vessel, name and number of vessel, organization / country of origin, and year of launch.
