Dress Up Your Digital Meetings With Cool Backgrounds From NASA

Ever been sucked into a black hole of a digital meeting or felt like a zombie on camera at 7 a.m.? We’ve been there! Fortunately, we’ve also been to space, so where else are you going to turn for the best backgrounds for your virtual meetings? This original NASA art also makes wonderful wallpaper perfect for desktops.

If your mind ever wanders during a video conference, then it should have a great destination. We’ve turned our popular Exoplanet Travel Bureau posters into digital backgrounds for those dreaming of an exotic vacation to worlds with double sunsets, lava seas, and nearby planets hanging like giant moons above the horizon.

Perhaps, you’ve got a video meeting with the team, or the big boss you want to impress. What’s more impressive than storied NASA spacecraft like the Hubble, Spitzer, Kepler, and TESS space telescopes? If you want to look cutting-edge, then choose the largest and most complex space observatory ever built, the James Webb Space Telescope. Adding bonus cool? Each background is done in a different artistic style.

Not every meeting is a nightmare, but if you want to embrace the dark side, then who are we to argue? But we do have roasted planets with never-ending screams, so you don’t have to!

Maybe you’re just feeling festive for Halloween? (Or maybe some daysjust feel like Halloween?) Our Galaxy of Horrors backgrounds are just the thing! Based on sci-fi movie posters, these are perfect for movie and horror buffs.

These backgrounds are fun, but the most important thing about them is they’re based on real science. When we depict rains of glass, it’s based on observed weather patterns and atmospheric detection on the exoplanet known as HD189733b. We show lava on 55 Cancri e because we’ve done a weather map of the exoplanet and know temperatures would turn rock to liquid – and we’ve detected the chemical signature of silicates in the atmosphere so we know the ingredients for rock are present. Science drives the art!
