The Stamps of NASA illustrate missions of NASA. NASA began in 1958 as part of the United States government, and is in charge of U.S. science and technology that has to do with airplanes or space. NASA does important search for water in the Solar system and beyond. Water is the most important source of life on a planet. Earth and Mars are very similar yet very different at the same time. While both planets have water, here on Earth it can be found everywhere. Curaçao has the best of both worlds. While our dry and rocky landscape look much like Mars, we have our beautiful crystal blue sea we share with the entire world. Therefore, let’s appreciate, preserve and enjoy every single Day of the Nature. Thank God we’re born here on this ‘Dushi’ Island of Curaçao.
