Description : Pasadena post stamp. Explorer 1 and NASA 25 th anniversary station.
As a result of the space race between USA and the Soviet Union in the 1950s, NASA was created in 1958 from NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, formed 1915) and other related organizations.
Launched on January 31, 1958, Explorer 1, officially Satellite 1958 Alpha, became the U.S.’s first earth satellite. The Explorer 1 payload consisted of the Iowa Cosmic Ray Instrument without a tape data recorder which was not modified in time to make it onto the satellite.
