NASA has shared a video imagining the whimsical future of human space travel. Created by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the brief visual envisions what the planets would look like as faraway vacation destinations arranged through the fictional Exoplanet Travel Bureau.

On Mars, a parent and their child watch as a rocket takes off from the dusty red ground. Meanwhile, on Venus, people gather enclosed with a clear dome.

Beyond merely the immediate planets, NASA depicts what it would be like to hang out on Enceladus or kayak through the waters of Titan, both of which are moons of Saturn.

The video’s description explained that it was inspired by a series of travel posters produced by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The Goddard Center’s Chris Smith used green screens and computer graphics to render the vivid scenes.

While the only place besides Earth where humans have stood is the Moon, NASA reminded viewers that plans for the first visit to Mars are well underway.
