I was thinking the same thing when I saw it. I'm guessing it's just one of those "old and European = medieval" generalizations. Or, it could have been purposeful, "medieval" does have more je ne sais quoi to it than "Victorian".

Besides, facts are overrated.

I ordered a large print and it shipped the same day. I was quite surprised by that. And, it looks even better in person.

I was going to also print off some NASA tourist posters (http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/visions-of-the-future/) to go alongside it.
