Star Trek 50th Anniversary Postage Stamps

This summer marks the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek. In celebration, the United States Postal Service will issue a series of commemorative stamps designed by The Heads of State, a design studio from Philadelphia created the designs along with Antonio Alcalá, who provided the direction for the concepts. The four stamps feature the Vulcan Salute, the USS Enterprise, the silhouette of a crew member, and the Starfleet insignia. Star Trek’s The Original Series debuted in 1966, running for three years. It lead to four spin-off TV series, thirteen movies, and numerous comics and novels. Hit the jump to see close-ups of the designs!

Here is a satellite view of the blizzard from the NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP which offers a different perspective.

The First Space Flower

A few days ago, Expedition 46 Commander Scott Kelly shared images of a blooming zinnia flower from the International Space Station’s Veggie plant growth system. The flowering crop experiment was initiated on November 16, 2015, but in December, Commander Kelly noted that the plants “weren’t looking too good.” By January 12, 2016, the flowers showed promise as the first peeks of petals began to sprout on a few buds, and four days later, these images were shared. Click the jump to see more images of the blooming space flower!
