Soon, you'll be able to send your bills into space. Well, not quite. But the James Webb Space Telescope, NASA's most powerful telescope ever, will be honored with a Forever stamp from the US Postal Service, and the USPS released a preview of it on Tuesday.

The striking and colorful stamp features an artist's digitally created depiction of the telescope against a dazzling starscape and displays an image of a star and distant space taken by the telescope early in its mission, "brilliantly confirming the perfect alignment of the telescope's 18 mirror segments," USPS said in a statement.

The stamp will be released on Sept. 8. Preorders begin Aug. 8.

Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current first-class mail one-ounce price.
