With the winter solstice and end of the Mayan calendar mere hours away (in the Eastern timezone at least) many of us will be reflecting on the vastness of the universe and what it all means. These photos probably won’t answer any existential questions but they do have the added benefit of just looking really damn cool. French photographer Vincent Fournier has put together a vast collection of photos under the name Space Project. In them you will find portraits of the physicists, engineers and scientists exploring mankind’s final frontier.

Photos via It’s Nice That and you can find more information on Vincent Fournier’s project.
