The UNISPACE+50 conference will take place June 20-21 in Vienna, Austria, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first U.N. Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. The first conference was held Aug. 14-27, 1968, in Vienna.

Six UNISPACE commemorative stamps and three souvenir sheets will be released June 20, the first day of the 2018 conference.

UN postage stamps to mark 50 years of 'peaceful uses of outer space'

A new set of postage stamps to be issued this month will mark the half century since the world first came together to discuss the peaceful uses of outer space.

The United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) will release six commemorative stamps celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. UNISPACE I, held in Vienna, Austria in 1968, brought together 78 countries to discuss the potential benefits of space exploration for all humankind.
