Mint Sheet Recalls Spacecraft That Have Explored Saturn
Now you can get six stamps honoring historic missions to investigate the sixth planet from our sun. One of the most famous is NASA's Cassini probe. This spacecraft was part of the Cassini-Huygens mission between NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Italian Space Agency. The probes sent as part of this mission survived nearly 20 years in outer space, including 13 in orbit around Saturn. Once the spacecraft finished its mission, it was sent into Saturn's atmosphere where it burned up.
The outer reach of our Solar System has always been one of the most fascinating areas of space exploration history. These stamps document that history and commemorate some of the most exciting missions that have reached Saturn. Get them in your collection today.
