Now this is an unusual tourist information centre: one that helps you plan your next intergalactic space holiday. Well, sort of. We’re talking the Intergalactic Travel Bureau which popped up for a fortnight in July near Times Square, New York.

The science-art project by Guerilla Science purports to offer options to tour the solar system, instead of, you know, the usual getaway to some random tropical island. The office even comes complete with travel agents — producer Olivia Koski and documentary artist Kaitlin Prest — to advise you on your trip, and you could even send a postcard from a planet if you desire. Fun!
