Meteorite Stamps and Coins

This dude has a nice collection of stamps and coins that depict images of meteorites and asteroids. This one is a souvenir sheet from North Korea depicting people and events in the history of the study of Mars. The two moons of Mars in the souvenir sheet, Phobos and Deimos are actually asteroids captured by Mars gravity.
