Infographic: JPL Mission History
This graphical timeline shows the launch dates of the more than 100 missions that JPL has either managed or participated in since 1958 -- and has planned through 2019. JPL is inviting members of the public to submit their own space and mission-themed visualizations as part of its newly-launched JPL Infographics website. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

JPL Infographics, a newly launched website and resource database from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., is inviting space aficionados and graphic wizards to take on a visual challenge by grabbing NASA data and transforming them into a scientific work of art.

The website provides extensive collections of NASA science and mission data, graphics and space images that members of the public can download and use to create their own infographics - creative illustrations of complex data. Users can then upload their infographics, have them reviewed by JPL experts, and share their creations in a public gallery on the JPL website.

Infographics and data visualizations are revitalizing the way we look at complex ideas and have become an increasingly popular way to represent technical data and concepts. The goal of JPL Infographics is to tap into the creative power of the public, uncovering new ways of explaining and understanding the wonders of space and space exploration. The marriage of science data and design may entice a brand new audience and may even inspire those who have seen the data before to envision it in a new light.

To sign up for a free account and to start creating and uploading your own creations, visit JPL Infographics at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/infographics/

JPL is managed by the California Institute of Technology for NASA.
