    Do you have higher-resolution versions of these available? I would love to print some out.

    Unfortunately I don’t have high-res versions, the paper versions of the posters are the exhibits of Memorial Museum of Сosmonautics located in Moscow.

    In that age, soviets made a lot of advance in aerospacial technology.
    Nice way to get interest of the people on Soviet’s spacial programs.

    Beautiful posters. I wish I could buy printed version of those.

    Hello,
    The images in this post are grat.

    I am looking for a vintage Sputnik poster and am surprised by how hard this has been so far. I am wondering anyone has access to anything that might meet my preferences:

    – Bold in color (it’s a long story, but this is actually for a baby’s room)
    –Sputnik 1 (although this isn’t a deal breaker)
    –Something without the dog (Laika)

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thanks
