Cover from Space!

Today I got a really cool cover from Space! The cover was made as a collaborative effort by the United States Postal Service and NASA. The cover was carried aboard STS-8, the eighth Space Shuttle flight. The cover is the first to feature postmarks indicating when it left for space and when it returned back to Earth. The postmark on the back of the cover shows where and when it returned, Edwards AFB on Sep. 5, 1983. The cover came with a very nice presentation folder with details about how the cover was made and the Space Shuttle flight itself.
