To celebrate NASA’s many discoveries, the USPS has just debuted some new stamps with images from outer space. Space fans are going to love sticking some of these on postcards or just keeping them as collectibles, since most of us don’t send snail mail these days.
The stamp set is called Views of Our Planets. It consists of new images of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and of course, Earth. But that’s not all. Thanks to the New Horizons mission to Pluto, there’s a special set of two stamps with a snapshot from July’s flyby and the spacecraft itself.
You can find the eight new planet stamps at your local post offices and online. If you want the Pluto stamps, they will be sold only online. Poor Pluto. Used to be a planet, and is just a dwarf planet now. You’ll always be a regular planet to me.
