Differences!
Exactly the same poster is hanging e.g. under the station in Main Street USA. Notice the different colours in comparison to the large poster hanging at the mountain itself (see Space Mountain - The Building)

Tips

Estimating waiting time
Here is a good trick for all those people who would like to estimate their waiting time before entering SpaceMountain for a second, third, and any further time: when the train arrives in the braking area (you will feel and hear that for sure,it is the first area that is lit when you "returned to earth" and has some cool flashing energy converters) make sure to look to your right: You will have the opportunity to see the waiting queue area. If you see some people standing there, it'll take you not more than 20mins until you can reboard. If the whole area is crowded then be prepared for a nasty long waiting line well above 20mins. If this area is empty, than you will have to wait 10mins at max. Should they be using both platforms for unloading and loading trains these times may be somewhat shorter.
There is another time factor to be considered: When fewer people are expected, then you will be able to step down to the platform directly from the waiting corridor. More people will make the waiting line extend for about another 5 minutes (simply add to the abovetimes!), as you will be directed around the whole loading area on the first level before going down to the platform. Some people claim that these 5 minutes cannot be added, as you are already hearing the SpaceMountain train's soundtrack when trains arrrive and depart...
And, of course, when you are in the waiting line, make sure to watch that braking area, as you are able to view the arriving trains from there, as well. Not long, as they are still going fast and the braking does not take long. but watch the people in the train and then imagine how you will look like in this situation. This will make you laugh, I guess. And will shorten your waiting time, as well...
p.s.: Managed to ride SpaceMountain 10times in succession during the period of two hours...i can tell you, the moon is not always awake... ;-)
