This is to announce the start of a weekly series in the "Stamps and Covers" section of collectSPACE that will be entitled "Space Cover of the Week." To promote and encourage space cover collecting, several of us ATA/Space Unit members have decided to begin a series that will feature a different space cover here each week.

At this time, only a few of us will participate in this weekly feature, but we invite others to join us and contribute with some of their own special covers.

We intend to span the large and rich field of astrophilately, which will include covers marking mostly significant space events, but occasionally even little-known events will be included. This series will display many various covers, cachets and cancels, along with information about them, that will show how meaningful and interesting collecting space covers can be.

We plan to continue this weekly series with a new cover every Monday and will begin with a cover that marks the beginning of one famous spacecraft's long road to space and into history.

We encourage comments from all space collectors especially Space Unit members. If you have a cover you would like to participate to the Cover of the Week feature, email Bob McLeod with your cover idea. We would like more participation from all. There are many different ways to collect. We are hoping to stimulate new collectors.
