The US space agency announced that the Pluto flyby — arguably one of the most important scientific achievements of the past year — would be honored with two stamps in 2016. The first depicts the New Horizons spacecraft, whereas the second showcases an enhanced color image of Pluto taken during the flyby. Among the other space stamps for 2016 are images of the planets and Earth’s moon. There are even four Star Trek stamps, which commemorate the 50th anniversary of the show’s premiere.
