Purgatory Post commemorates Skylab 2 mission
Following a break of several months, New Hampshire-based Purgatory Post on June 17, 2023, released a pair of stamps commemorating the 50th anniversary of Skylab 2.
One of the 2-sola stamps depicts crew members Joe Kerwin, Pete Conrad, and Paul Weitz along with the Skylab 2 launch vehicle, while the other pictures the Skylab station and the mission patch.
The Skylab 2 crew spent nearly a month in space, much of which time they spent making repairs to the Skylab station in addition to taking various measurements and conducting experiments.
Purgatory Post operator Scott Abbot notes that although the mission patch pictured on the second stamp reads “Skylab I,” it was the official insignia used for Skylab 2 due to internal miscommunication at NASA.
