James Webb Space Telescope can deliver images of distant planets and galaxies. Now check out the well-known telescope in your letters. The US Postal Service is launching a JWST stamp that will be available to pre-order starting August 28th in sheets of 20. It’s a digital depiction of the telescope against a galactic backdrop. So if you are a fan of the space telescope, this may be all you need to exhibit your nerdy interest when you send a letter or parcel to a friend.
The USPS didn’t talk about the cost of the stamp. As a Forever stamp, however, the JWST print will always be worth the First-Class Mail one-ounce price. You won’t have to worry about using extra stamps years down the road. That is always a great thing. Forever 20-stamp sheets usually cost $12, so that may be the price.
It is a good way to celebrate the bleeding edge of astronomy tech, even if it is by using mail stickers that are a very old invention. They will definitely add a personal touch to your mail so that everyone will know you love space and high-tech telescopes.
