Meet the first women in space
It's been 55 years since Russian legend Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman to go into space.
On 16 June 1963, she blasted off on a Soviet Vostok 6 rocket, on a journey that lasted 3 days.
It would then be nearly 20 years until the next woman went into space. In 1982, Russian Svetlana Savitskaya flew on the Soyuz T-7 mission and became the first woman to carry out a spacewalk.
Since then, many women have other countries gone on to follow in their footsteps.
