Astronomy in stamps

I love this terrific sheetlet, issued in March 2008, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Astronomical Society of Japan. Photos of the planets, which could not have been possible a century ago, are now taken for granted by schoolchildren.
There's a fabulous site for Astronomy buffs: http://www.astronomy.com/asy/default.aspx
