The First Woman in Space: Valentina Tereshkova Signed Photo

Tereshkova, Valentina

SP - Signed Photo

[Space]. [Photograph}: Valentina Tereshkova Signed Photo. Color photograph signed by the first woman in space. Signature in blue ink at bottom right corner of photo. Measures approximately 8x10" and in very good condition. Tereshkova was the world's first woman to have flown in space as a Cosmonaut in the Soviet space program. She made this record in June 1963, on the solo mission Vostock 6. During her 3 day mission, she completed 48 orbits around the earth. The first male astronaut Yuri Gagarin only achieved spaceflight two years earlier in 1961, so her early involvement in the space program is remarkable. Boldly signed in blue ink in cursive Cyrillic with “Vostok – 6”. Excellent condition with tiny crease in upper right corner. A signed portrait of a pioneering astronaut and important figure for women’s achievements in space.
