Valentina Tereshkova was born on March 6, 1937 in the Yaroslavl Region into a family of collective farmers. From the age of 17 she worked as a weaver, and later became interested in parachuting. At the end of 1961, the authorities decided to prepare women for space flight. Valentina Tereshkova made her space flight (the world’s first flight of a woman-cosmonaut) on June 16, 1963 on the Vostok-6 spacecraft. At the same time, the Vostok-5 spacecraft, piloted by cosmonaut Valery Bykovsky, was in orbit.
