Earth, the penultimate frontier...
As part of London Art Fair - which kicks off next week from 13-17 January at the Business Design Centre in Islington - The Steps Gallery will be showcasing a series of striking images by French photographer Vincent Fournier...
Fournier's work focuses on the interiors of Chinese, Russian and US space agencies - and also includes some remarkable images of astronauts training grounds that, appropriately, look completely out of this world. Here's a selection of some of the imagery that will show at The Steps Gallery stand during next week's event:

When can I move in?
Although if trying to give the impression that the astronaut is on another planet in space etc etc blah blah, I don't think the astronaut (second from last photo) would be leaning down to support himself from falling over. No gravity!! I might be wrong of course.
Well the gravity would depend on what planet he was on. Mar's gravity isn't vastly different from Earth's, and even the moon has SOME gravity.
Anyway nice pics.
Can someone help find a Mars terrain on earth. All red :)
Those last two photos aren't too unlike Mars which isn't red but rather a rust colour. NASA has been known to redden their images to fit in with misconceptions about Mars. Pretty poor for a science body which put so much money and effort into getting there... but perhaps that was their PR people.
I really dig the scale between the "astronaut" and the rest. Would be nice to see them in big prints.
