The stamp design, which shows the capsule plummeting back towards Earth.

When the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft delivers its capsule filled with asteroid dust to a group of eager scientists in the Utah desert on Sept. 24, it will mark a milestone in American space exploration.

To celebrate, the U.S. Postal Service is commemorating the delivery of the sample from the asteroid Bennu with a new stamp design. The new stamp features an illustration of the capsule falling beneath a red and white parachute toward a rocky desert landscape.
