Luc Delmon (L-R), president of the philatelic association ?La Marianne?, Ulrich Bremer, board member of ERNO-Philatelie, and Rachid Amekrane, ATV cargo manager at Astrium GmbH, present a part of the 1.750 first day covers which travelled to the International Space Station (ISS) with the Automated Transfer Vehicle ?Jules Verne? in early 2008 in the clean room of EADS Astrium GmbH in Bremen, Germany, 05 March 2009. The 177.296.265 kilometres are the longest way a postal mail ever travelled. The first day covers with a weight of 4.5 kilogramms were part of the 9.5 tons of payload during the supply flight to ISS. They are of inestimable worth to philatelists. Photo: Ingo Wagner
