A new set of U.S. postage stamps will soon shine light on a NASA mission exploring our nearest star.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) on Friday (Jan. 15) announced “Sun Science,” a set of ten different stamps that will celebrate the ongoing study of the sun using digital images from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The Forever-denomination stamps will be released later this year.
