Women in Space

A comment I saw today on the news of the passing of Sally Ride (may she rest in peace) was that she flew shortly after Tereshkova.

This is a shot of Tereshkova decorating Neil Armstrong in 1970 (under the benignant gaze of I. Gagarin, who had died 2 years earlier); seven years after Vostok 6 and 13 years before STS-7.

From the work of Rudolf Kucherov at RIA Novosti

UPDATE God I love old Soviet Agitprop
