2018 New Zealand in Space

On Sunday 21 January 2018 New Zealand’s role in the international aerospace industry was elevated to a whole new level, when Rocket Lab launched its Electron rocket into orbit from Mahia Peninsula. We celebrate this extraordinary achievement with a commemorative stamp sheet.
