About this piece of art
The Soviet space program (Космическая программа СССР) was the national space program of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), conducted in competition with its Cold War adversary the United States (known as the Space Race from the mid 1950s until 1991). Because of the propaganda value everything 'cosmos related' was made back in the day. The most beautiful paintings, posters and of course stamps like these are a dear reminder of those times.
The stamps have not been used.
