On 20 June 2018, UNPA will issue six stamps and three souvenir sheets to celebrate UNISPACE+50. UNISPACE+50 is a special segment of the sixty-first session of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) that will be held from 20 to 21 June 2018 in Vienna. The purpose of UNISPACE+50 is to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the first United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, and to take stock of the contributions to global space governance of the three UNISPACE conferences, held in Vienna in 1968, 1982 and 1999. It is also an opportunity for United Nations Member States, permanent observers, United Nations entities, space agencies, NGOs, academia, civil society, students, the private sector and industry to gather and consider the future course of global space cooperation for the benefit of humankind.
