Murchison rocks!

In 1969, one of the world's most studied meteorites fell to earth in Murchison, Victoria.

It was discovered years later that the silicon carbide particles found in the meteorite were 7 billion years old, the oldest material found on earth to date.

Backpack was commissioned by Australia Post to design a commemorative stamp for this significant event. The stamp depicts the meteorite in flight, with the hexagonal patterns representing the amino acids found in the meteorite.
