2011 is International Year of Chemistry

This is a worldwide celebration of the achievements of chemistry and its contributions to the well-being of humankind. Under the unifying theme “Chemistry—our life, our future,” IYC 2011 will offer a range of interactive, entertaining, and educational activities for all ages. The Year of Chemistry is intended to reach across the globe, with opportunities for public participation at the local, regional, and national level. 

To celebrate many countries are issuing new postage stamps of famous chemists. Here’s my favorite selection of stamps in honor of Marie Curie courtesy of Daniel Rabinovich:
