On June 14, as part of the Nobel Prize Winners series, a stamp dedicated to P.L. Kapitsa, physics

Petr Leonidovich Kapitsa (1894–1984) - physicist, academician of the USSR Academy of Sciences (1939), twice Hero of Socialist Labor, and Nobel Prize winner.

The most famous for Peter Kapitsa brought his innovative experimental research in the field of low temperature physics, the creation of technology for obtaining pulsed superstrong magnetic fields, work on plasma physics. In 1938, Peter Leonidovich discovered an unusual property of liquid helium - a sharp decrease in viscosity at a temperature below the critical (2.19 K); this phenomenon is now called superfluidity.

In 1978, Peter Kapitsa was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics "for his fundamental inventions and discoveries in the field of low-temperature physics".

The postage stamp depicts a portrait of Peter Leonidovich Kapitsa against the background of the drawing of the “spider” device, which the physicist came up with to demonstrate the helium superfluidity phenomenon discovered by him.

In addition to the issue of postage stamps of JSC "Mark", the first day envelopes will be issued and a special cancellation stamp will be made for Moscow.
