This mint collector's sheet of vintage unused postage is a rare gem! Includes 48 stamps on the sheet. 
The individual stamps recall great moments that occurred during the United States crusade into the unknown. Those highlights include the walk on the moon and the development of the Columbia space shuttle and Skylab. These issues also honor the advancement of telescopes and satellites, which allow us to study the planets and communicate with countries around the globe.
These Skylab missions included many tasks, such as testing human adaptability to weightlessness, conducting experiments at zero gravity, studying a broad view of Earth’s surface, and taking full-spectrum photos of the Universe outside of atmospheric distortion. They also studied the laws of nature and the effects of weightlessness on plant and animal development.
