C372 25th Anniversary of Discovery Relaunch
Issue Date: September
On September 29, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues six special new stamps commemorating the 25th
Anniversary of the relaunch of the Space Shuttle program wth the relaunch of the Discovery. When NASA launched its first space shuttle, Columbia, in 1981, its success paved the way for continued
space shuttle development. Between 1981 and 1985, 23 missions were flown by America's space shuttles. In 1986, however, tragedy struck as the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after
launch, killing all seven crew members. The subsequent launch of the space shuttle Discovery on September 29, 1988, was the most suspenseful lift-off ever. Americans anticipated the historic
event with pride and great expectations, but with anxious hearts as well. For the first time since the Challenger disaster, NASA would launch a manned spacecraft. Fortunately, fears proved
unfounded, as millions around the world watched Discovery's safe blast-off into space--a moment which reignited America's pride in its space program.
