From a young age, she was interested in skydiving and trained in it.

The beginning...

.Terechova joined the aero-club laroslavl to do the parachutism

.She makes her first free fall jumping in may 1959, she is just 22 years old

.In two years, she reached an excellent level which allowed her to become an instructor in her turn. At the same time, she joined the Komsomol, the youth organization of the Soviet Communist Party.

.Tereshkova and her colleagues begin to undergo a series of training sessions intended to prepare them for the most extreme conditions they are likely to encounter during their space mission.

Tereshkova, arrived in March 1962 at the training center in the suburbs of Moscow, they found themselves in a military unit which, with its procedures and its discipline, was completely foreign to them.

The exploration :

.On June 16, 1963, Vostok 6 took off without a hitch and Valentina Tereshkova became, at age 26, the first woman in space.

.In 70 hours and 41 minutes, it performs 48 orbits around the Earth. Despite feeling nauseous and uncomfortable for most of the trip, she keeps a travel diary and takes pictures of the horizon that will later be used to identify layers of aerosols in the atmosphere.

.Held in secret, it was not until 30 years later that she revealed a malfunction of her ship: during the braking phase, the ship was oriented for the ascent and not the descent, which gradually moved it away from Earth. .

.A television camera has been installed in both capsules, and footage broadcast around the world shows a smiling Tereshkova as a pencil and notebook float in front of her.

The return :

.On June 19, on the way back, Valentina ejected as planned; finding herself above a lake, she nevertheless manages to fly over it by parachute and land on dry land.

.She is then transported to the nearest village to telephone the authorities and tell them where she will be arriving. She manages to contact Khrushchev to whom she gives a brief summary of her situation, then she is brought back to her ship.

.Tereshkova and Bykovski are awarded the two highest awards in the country: they are awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.

.But reports of Tereshkova's performance during her flight are all negative. The head of cosmonaut training, Nikolai Kamanin, notes that Tereshkova quickly got tired. His work capacity was lower than expected.

.The medical officer indicates in his report that Tereshkova was ill during the 32nd and 42nd orbit, that her appetite decreased, that she vomited and that her heart activity slowed down.

Her life after :

.After this flight, Tereshkova goes on visits to the Soviet Union and around the world. She made no less than 43 tours abroad between 1963 and 1970, including one in France from May 10 to 22, 1965.

.Tereshkova held posts in the country's most important political bodies from 1966 until the end of the Soviet Union.

.Tereshkova married cosmonaut Andrian Nikolayev on November 3, 1963, in the presence of the country's main leaders.

.Although she became a mother in June 1964 and despite her numerous tours abroad and in the Soviet Union, Tereshkova wanted to continue her career as a cosmonaut. For this purpose she follows a training cycle at the Academy of Engineers of the Air Force Joukovski.

.In 1968, the female cosmonaut corps was disbanded. No more Soviets would go into space until Svetlana Savitskaya flew in 1982. When the career of cosmonautism was again opened to women in 1978, Tereshkova successfully passed the medical exams to qualify. She will not fly again but will later occupy an instructor position.

"If I had the money, I'd like to fly to Mars. It was the dream of the first cosmonauts. I wish I could make it! I'm ready to go one way."
