Voyager missions to gas giants and beyond The idea is to mark the Voyager 1 & 2 missions to gas giants of our Solar system and their continuous operation while on their way to the interplanetary space. The gas giants stack The gas giant planets are stacked vertically to create the illusion of the free space, suspended in space above the Earth at night ...

This is a mock-up (not an actual printed t-shirt) with finalized new design for this event:     This is not in any capacity an official or Stack Exchange endorsed design for Space Exploration, I made it together with Kim exclusively for this LEAG event, but you can request high resolution layouts for print (for A4 or A3 size transfer paper, ...

Now to report back on how the LEAG meeting space.stackexchange promotion mission went. Pretty well, I think. There were things that made it harder for me to spend time talking about it, but when I did, it went well. The t-shirts disappeared in a flash and I wish I'd gotten more. The sharpie markers and stickers that were also on offer went much more slowly, ...

First of, welcome to Space Exploration, and thanks for asking this question! I have already posted some suggestion in other similar threads in our Meta, so I'll just repeat it here and perhaps expand a bit on it, as soon as I can think of other ways: Use the share and favorite buttons under questions and answers. Have you asked a question, or maybe answered ...

Well, Stack Exchange agreed this is a good opportunity to spread the word about Space Exploration SE. They sent out some black t-shirts, and some other stuff, the package is waiting at the hotel for me. I am printing up transfers to iron on to those shirts so they have the design TildalWave shows in his answer. And I am mentally practicing the pitch I'll ...

One thing that I think could be emphasized more is the potential of crowdfunded space exploration and astronomy. Obviously, the total budget of space science and exploration is still beyond that of a single crowdfunding project, but individual satellites or additional science missions for probes are good targets for crowdfunding initially. If you can get ...

Perhaps you've noticed the 'Know someone who can answer?' box at the bottom of questions without answers. There are templates through the links there that work with the 4 most common services. My guess is the best approach is for people who have some personal connection to the person being invited to take this step. Otherwise maybe it would be annoying. Did ...

Short of promotion, we are doing it all right. Content is what draws visitors in, and Google is certainly indexing our content. According to SE, 90% of our traffic should eventually come from search engines. I'd need a mod to verify this, but it seems that we are already getting views from search engines - I'm sure that the community itself isn't generating ...

The user Valorum on Sci-fi and Fantasy has proposed his own adaptation of the above. It’s a bit of a variation on an older ad design and looks quite interesting, in my opinion. If people here like it it can be upvotes, otherwise it could be downvoted (or ask to be removed). The link to the answer is here, and the image is below:

Having the galactic plane nicely perpendicular to the ecliptic (rather than oblique) opens the site up to ridicule by "sticklers" everywhere, I hope that won't reappear, no matter how nice it looks! below: From the nicely written Did Earth cross the galactic equator in 2012?.
