A series of whimsical sci-fi posters from SpaceX rendered in the pleasant Art Deco style leaves no doubt Elon Musk is a Martian.

Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla Motors, once famously said he wanted to die on Mars after building a SpaceX colony on the Red Planet.

'I would like to die on Mars, just not on impact,' he said.

The three beautiful posters rendered in the elegant Art Deco poster style popular in the 1920s and 1030, depict three themes: Discover Valles Marineris (Land of Martian Chasms and Craters); Phobos & Deimos (Take a Space-Age Cruise Among the Moons of Mars) and Summit Olympus Mons (The Solar System's Highest Peak).

From these descriptions, the retro posters are tourism ads that urge future Martians, some of whom will travel to Mars on SpaceX's Mars Colonial Transporter, to see some of their new planet's most famous sights, said the Daily Mail.

The posters were created by a fictional organization called the "Mars Colonization and Tourism Association".

A giant canyon, Valles Marineris is one of the largest in the solar system and is more than 4,000 km long, 200 km wide and up to 7 km deep. It covers a fifth of the circumference of Mars.

The other poster shows a cable car ascending Olympus Mons, the highest mountain and volcano in the solar system. With a height of nearly 25 km, Olympus Mons is almost three times taller than Mount Everest.
