Purgatory Post commemorates launch of Crew-2

On June 1, New Hampshire-based Purgatory Post issued a pair of 2-sola stamps commemorating the successful launch of SpaceX Crew-2. The Crew Dragon spacecraft used for the mission launched from Kennedy Space Center on April 23 of this year, successfully docking with the International Space Station the next day.

One of the stamps pictures the spacecraft itself, while the other features a photo of astronauts K. Megan McArthur, Thomas Pesquet, Akihiko Hoshide, and Shane Kimbrough.

Crew-2 is not scheduled to return to earth for several months, with the next mission, Crew-3, currently planned for an October launch date.

As you’re probably aware if you’ve followed my posts about Purgatory Post, its operator, Scott A., is very interested in spaceflight. In addition to commemorating contemporary missions, he has issued numerous other spaceflight-related stamps, including an ongoing series marking the 50th anniversaries of each of the Apollo missions.
