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.”

Windows to Russia!


The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
