Lots of interesting photographs of Valentina Tereshkova on the site.
A few years ago I was in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, and visited the hotel to where Tereshkova was brought after her landing in the nearby steppe. The hotel, with a saucer-shaped restaurant on the roof, was renamed Chaika
(Seagull) in her honor. Her Vostok-6
space capsule "complete with asbestos dropping on to the snow" is still at the hotel.
Bumpishka. Good to see you.
A heroic woman. Kudos to her.

She was one of my heroes when I was a little girl.
