First Woman in Space Valentina Tereshkova!

47 years ago on June 16th, 1963 – Valentina Tereshkova first woman in space. I then went and looked up some information because I thought, “No Way!”

It is true and Valentina Tereshkova is now 73-years-old, and lives in Star City, just outside Moscow.

She has been quoted as saying while talking with Putin: “If I had money, I would enjoy flying to Mars,” she said. “This was the dream of the first cosmonauts. I wish I could realize it! I am ready to fly without coming back.”
