China issued a series of stamps in a miniature sheet called `Chinese Dream- Prosperous and Strong Country`. They were designed by He Jie and Zhou Yue and issued on September 29. 2013. Each stamp showed a different dream. The 80 fen stamp showed the crewed Shenzhou spacecraft approaching the Tiangong 1 space station with rendezvous and docking. The 120 fen stamp shows the Beidou navigation satellite system. The second 120 fen stamp shows the Liaoning aircraft carrier while the final stamp shows the Jiaolong manned submersible. The miniature sheet brings these together with the oceans of space and on the Earth.
