Purgatory Post commemorates SpaceX Crew-5 mission
On October 25, Purgatory Post issued a pair of 5-sola stamps commemorating the SpaceX Crew-5 mission. Crew-5 launched from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on October 5, carrying three astronauts and one cosmonaut to the International Space Station.
One of the stamps pictures Russia’s Anna Kikina the United States’ Josh Cassada and Nicole Mann (commander), and Japan’s Koichi Wakata, along with the launch of the Crew-5 capsule. The other stamp features an image of the spacecraft in orbit plus the mission patch.
Crew-5 is expected to remain docked with the ISS until February 2023 and to return to Earth the following month.
