To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Britain’s first contribution to space exploration—and Britain's launch of its first satellite, Ariel 1—Royal Mail has released six commemorative stamps. The set of stamps—designed by Osborne Ross Design—depicts The Sun, Saturn, Saturn’s largest moon Titan, the Lutetia asteroid, Venus and Mars. The images featured were from European Space Agency missions.
