It was thought that anything like a lander might sink into the dust surface of the moon, but on the 31st of January, 1966, the Luna 9 was launched and 4 days later made its landing proving that the moon was capable of supporting the weight. This stamp shows the lander and its first panorama photograph of the surface of the moon.

  3. Fascinating, really evokes that early era of exploration.
    I have stayed on earth here

  4. Fantastic stamp. I'm in awe of all the science that goes into getting a vehicle to the moon or another solar object from earth.
