Space Travel Poster – J1407B

T his illustration is one of a series that I have been working on, borrowing heavily from the art-deco-style travel posters from the middle of the twentieth century.
      This one regards the Sun-like star J1407, around which astronomers have found a curious thing – a planet or brown dwarf encircled by a series of concentric rings. The rings are probably a primitive moon system in the process of formation. The largest (Galilean) satellites of Jupiter are thought to have formed around that planet in a similar fashion.
