I’m a sucker for great infographics and National Geographic really takes the cake with this one.  Published back in 2008, Sean McNaughton and Samuel Velasco published this fantastic infographic detailing 200 lunar, solar, and interplanetary missions.  With so many missions and so many locations, it must have been a considerable challenge attempting to find the best way to organize the information but they did a fantastic job.  The result is simple, elegant, and profound.  This is how you win the game of awesome information.
