Own a Mint Stamp Tribute
To the First Woman in Space –
Valentina Tereshkova

Following Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s successful first human spaceflight and orbit of Earth in 1961, discussions began about sending the first woman into space.  A total of 400 applicants were considered, but only one could be the first woman in space, and that was Valentina Tereshkova. 

On June 16, 1963, Vostok 6 launched flawlessly and Tereshkova became the first woman in space.  Despite experiencing some nausea and physical discomfort for most of the flight, Tereshkova orbited the earth 48 times, spending almost three days in space.  With this single flight, she logged more flight time than all American astronauts combined up to that time.  Tereshkova kept a detailed flight log and took photographs of the horizon that were later used to find aerosol layers in the atmosphere. 

Now you can own a neat mint souvenir sheet honoring Tereshkova’s historic flight.  It features three pictures of the astronaut as well as the Vostok 6 that took her into space and the Hero of the Soviet Union medal she received.  A great addition to your collection – order yours today.
