       2012年10月16日,英国邮政发行一套6枚《太空科学》邮票,以纪念英国第一颗人造卫星航空一号发射50周年。 1959年,英国大学的研究团队响应美国宇航局发出的号召加入国际空间研究合作。1962年4月26日,英国设计和运营的第一颗卫星航空一号发射。自此英国在空间创新和技术以及通讯卫星等商业化空间服务领域一直处于世界领先地位。这套邮票的设计得到了欧洲太空局的协助,所有图像均来自于欧洲太空局,展示了从太阳系的中心到土星的一路太空风景。这6枚邮票展示了太阳、金星、火星、小行星鲁特西亚、土星和土星的最大的卫星——泰坦。这套邮票由Osborne Ross设计室设计,由法国的卡特尔印制。

The image, gathered from European Space Agency’s (ESA) Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) midway between the Earth and the Sun, shows particles being ejected from the solar surface. The UK has played a major part in the design, construction, operation and science of the mission. It led the design of the Coronal Diagnostic Spectrometer instrument. SOHO itself was assembled in Portsmouth and then shipped to America for launch.

Shot from ESA’s Venus Express probe, the image shows clouds in the southern hemisphere of the second planet out from Sun. The Venus Express mission was proposed by scientists from Oxford University to study why the planet is so different from our own. After the mission was adopted by the European Space Agency, the UK became involved in five out of the seven instruments on board and continues to help with operating the spacecraft.

Ice within a 35 km wide impact crater on the red planet was photographed by ESA’s Mars Express probe. Mars Express was Europe’s first mission to the red planet, and the UK is involved in three of its six instruments, including the camera, which is revealing breathtaking vistas. The mission also carried the British-built Beagle 2 lander; unfortunately, it did not survive its passage through the Martian atmosphere.

On route to a meeting with the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko the ESA probe Rosetta had a close encounter with the Lutetia asteroid, located within the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Rosetta came within 500 miles (800km) of the small, diamond-shaped asteroid.

Lit up by the Sun behind, the beautiful icy rings of Saturn were photographed by the Cassini probe. Cassini-Huygens has transformed our understanding of them, discovering new rings and moons. UK universities and industry have contributed to many of the instruments on both parts of the mission (see below).

土星的最大的卫星——泰坦
 

Titan
?1.28
Image preview by Royal Mail

In 2005 ESA’s Huygens probe parachuted through the atmosphere of Saturn’s largest moon to land on Titan’s surface. The Open University led the Huygens Surface Science Package, which included a British-built sensor that became the first part of Huygens to touch the surface of Titan. The image captured on the stamp was taken on the way to this historic encounter.
