      WASHINGTON (AP) - Mars Pathfinder, whose mission to the red
planet riveted Americans' attention this summer, will be
commemorated on a postage stamp.

      Pathfinder attracted a worldwide television audience as it
parachuted to the surface July 4. It began returning data and
pictures and provided thousands of pictures and other data until it
sent its last set of scientific findings Sept. 27. The lander sent
out its last signal Oct. 7.

      ``As one of the most significant achievements in the history of
America's space program, it is fitting that the Pathfinder mission
be honored on a U.S. postage stamp,'' Postmaster General Marvin
Runyon said.

      The $3-stamp will be issued Dec. 10 at NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. It depicts the Sojourner rover at
rest on Pathfinder with a panoramic view and is based on one of the
first images sent back from Mars.
