For the past 14 years, the Space Symposium commemorative space art poster has been a treasured keepsake. The 29th National Space Symposium poster, designed by artist Richard Green, speaks to the aspects that drive all of us in the space industry: the wonder of new, unexplored worlds; the challenge of technological feats not yet attempted; the visceral excitement of a rocket launch; the lure of knowledge undiscovered and the promise of a future better than the present.

The poster is being distributed to promote the 29th National Space Symposium and it will be distributed to Symposium attendees at the Space Foundation booth in the Lockheed Martin Exhibit Center. In addition to being used as a poster, Green's artwork is driving the design for all 29th National Space Symposium advertising, collateral, signage and promotional materials, as well as this website.
