Space Odyssey

Researchers discovered a nearby planet on which life might be a possibility. This news came just days after SpaceX managed to land their Falcon 9 rocket upright for a second time, which is needed for humans to travel back and forth to these planets of which Mars will likely be the first.

Space exploration is heading towards a renaissance period with private investors, such as Elon Musk and Richard Branson, keen to push the boundaries and as a result public interest is soaring.

Most of us are probably not able to pay for a ticket to Mars or a cruise around the Earth’s outer atmosphere, so here are our top 10 picks from Etsy makers who can keep your space dreams alive.

10 Solar System Lamp

Let’s be honest, who really enjoys a tattooing session? These beauties look just like the real thing, without the pain or price of a multi-hour needle session. Check out their shop for other great galaxy designs.

Amanda’s shop is quickly becoming an internet hype. After we featured her last year her work has been picked up by several other blogs and getting your hands on one of her creations is like buying tickets to a rock concert. Truly inspired pottery. Amanda relists new items several times per month.
