Here are some wonderful works by Austrian designer Michael Paukner, plucked from his Flickr set entitled See the Bigger Picture.
I’ve always been a fan of visualizing the systems and forces that govern earth’s forces, and the universe for that matter. Michael tackles religion, astronomy, chemistry, geometry and the esoteric in his designs with great use of typography and icons. The works in this set are even available on canvas.
You can see more of Michael’s work on his Flickr stream as well as his personal website.

I love the Solar System one and thought you might like to see what other people call these planets in different languages.
