The space periodic table poster is our latest favorite type of table to make. Basically, we take one of our best tables and place it on a space background. Some of the images are public domain photographs taken by the Hubble telescope. Others are generated using Photoshop. Most of these are huge tables intended for posters that are too big to offer as printable tables.
Here’s a collection of periodic table posters that feature all 118 elements (for 2017) and space theme backgrounds.
Orion Nebula Periodic Table
This is a 2017 periodic table with all 118 elements. The element tiles are semi-transparent, set against a Hubble photograph of a portion of the Orion nebula. This table is only available on Redbubble because its filesize is huge. It’s on big periodic table posters, prints, and other products.
Veil Nebula Periodic Table
This table features the Veil nebula, which is also known as the Witch’s Broom nebula. The periodic table is a solid color, set against a space background. Like the Orion nebula table, we’re only offering this one on Redbubble.
Star and Nebula Periodic Table
This colorful table is set against a huge Hubble composite photograph of the Carina nebula. It’s available on Redbubble, plus you can also print it yourself. The printable is poster-sized.
Galaxy Periodic Table
This is a black periodic table against a photo of a spiral galaxy. The full image is featured on a periodic table poster, with a zoomed-in view on coffee mugs, clocks, and such. The galaxy background is an actual photograph.
Starfield Space Periodic Table
The element tiles are round, with a simple starfield or space background behind the periodic table. This space background was made, not photographed.
Original Space Periodic Table Poster
The first periodic table we offered with a space theme is this one. It doesn’t offer all 118 elements, but it is available as a printable you can download here on Science Notes or you can get it on assorted products at our Redbubble store.
If you have a request for a type of table you’d like to see, please let us know. We’ll add new space periodic table posters to this page as they are created.
