Space destinations

With Galactic Getaways the holiday destinations that are truly out of this world
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take a holiday to another planet
Well, now your imagination can run wild with Galactic Getaways, an interactive travel guide that allows you to envision your extraterrestrial escape.
Taking the nine planets in our Solar System, the guide accounts for all of the factors that are considered when planning a holiday, from weather and average temperatures, to sports and activities included within your travel itinerary.
Galactic Getaways uses Nasa data to forecast the weather and travel time, as well as to suggest sports, activities and things to see.
Destination factors include:
  • Distance from the sun (KM)
  • Travel time from earth
  • Average temperature (degrees C)
  • Length of a day (hours)
  • Moons
  • Weather
  • Surface type
  • Interesting fact
  • Sports
  • Photo opportunity. 
With diamond rain, blue clouds, liquid surfaces and the tallest mountain in the solar system, you’ll be spoilt for choice for photo opportunities.
Pluto may be one of the smallest planets in our Solar System but the dwarf planet has some mighty features and a big heart - literally! Its heart-shaped glacier is the size of both Texas and Oklahoma combined, meaning it’s a perfect destination for a honeymoon! 
As the windiest planet, Neptune offers stunning photo opportunities as well as thrill-seeking activities. Adrenaline junkies can try windsurfing, while digital dynamos can snap shots of the striking blue clouds. 
Whether it’s the draw of the diamond rain on Saturn or the temptation of the toasty temperatures of 167 degrees on Mercury, this space travel guide visualises dream destinations with experiences that are truly out of this world...
The piece launches in the run up to the Orionids Meteor Shower on October 21st when pieces of Halley’s Comet will be be visible. To go alongside the guide is a selection of stunning postcards inspired by the planets. To observe all the galactic holidays: www.galactic-getaways.com
