Image of the Day: Expedition 42 Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

1-Exp42 SFA Poster
Here is a great poster for the International Space Station (along with NASA). They like to create posters for their different Expeditions. I think this one is fantastic. It will be extremely hard to top this one. Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti from the European Space Agency shared this image on her Google + account.

Here is the information from her Google + post.

The Expedition 42 Poster!

I am incredibily excited to share with you the Expedition 42 poster!
If you like it half as much as I do, it will still be your favorite expedition poster ever.

Enjoy, don’t panic and always know where your towel is!
