For fans of the long-running cartoon from Comedy Central, Southpark, this poster file (16 x 20 inches) is a re-creation of the poster seen in the background of Mr. Garrison's 4th grade classroom, the famous "Math Is...Universal" poster. The astronomical image is known commonly as the Keyhole nebula (open link in new tab), captured from the telescopes at Kitt Peak National Observatory near Tuscan, Arizona. Note, this image is a smaller part of the Carina nebula.

THe font wasn't easy to find, but here it is! The font used is called arcon (click to download the font). You may get this poster printed at any photo printing services, at a size of 16 inches by 20 inches for around $25. Be sure to display the poster in plain sight, you never know what 4th grader will be inspired...🔭
