Space Post Office

In this era of Facebook, email, Twitter and other social media, getting a postcard from someone's travels has a certain appeal.China's mail service looks to be taking that tourist postcard to a whole new level.

To celebrate  docking of the
Shenzhou-8 unmanned spacecraft with space lab module Tiangong-1, China's post authority has opened a new branch office outside the country and out of this world -- 343 kilometers above the Earth, to be exact.

Opening for business on the same day, the China Post Space Office has two venues -- one on-the-ground base inside the Beijing Aerospace Command and Control Center (BACCC) and one "virtual office" aboard the Shenzhou-8 spacecraft. There is also a new designated post code -- 901001.

China Post Group’s general manager Li Guohua told China Daily the post office will be able to deliver mail from the public to astronauts in future. The office will also issue postal souvenirs, such as stamps and envelopes that depict China's major space program events.
