The dwarf planet Pluto may be at the edge of our solar system, but an effort on Earth is seeking to put the icy world in mailboxes across the country — in stamp form.

An online petition backed by scientists with NASA’s New Horizons mission is pushing for new postage stamp for Pluto and is hoping to hit 100,000 signatures by March 13, which is the 82nd anniversary of Pluto’s discovery.

So far, the effort has gained the support of almost 6,000 Pluto fans since the petition launched on Feb. 1. is tracking the new Pluto stamp effort through its March 13 deadline. The petition, hosted at, will be submitted to the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee of the U.S. Postal Service.
