Local(-ish) badass/Toronto-based designer Margot Trudell has collected every space mission from every space-faring country in history into this awesome infographic map/timeline in her OMG SPACE project. Every landing, every fly-by, every return trip — it’s all here, in chronological order. The accompanying OMG SPACE interactive webpage even assembles the Solar System into a single scrolling page to scale. (Mr. Owl, how many scrolls does it take to get to Pluto?) Just awesome.

The project was designed for print (which is why some of the text is hard to read on a computer screen) so support the fine science arts and buy a poster. I know there’s nothing you want more than some fine science art hanging on your walls. There’s certainly nothing I want more.

Stunning work, Margot!
