1966 Jodrell Bank radio telescope
Britain’s first astronomy-related stamp, showing the Jodrell Bank radio telescope, was issued in 1966 as the lowest-value member of a set saluting British technology. Coloured black and what was officially described as ‘lemon’, it was drab, poorly reproduced, and unimpressive. The other values and subjects were: 6d, British motor cars; 1s 3d, SRN6 Hovercraft; 1s 6d, Windscale reactor.
