Artist Celebrates Women in Science with Whimsical Drawings

TODAY IN HISTORY: Soviet cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman in space. On June 16, 1963, she soared to the heavens with the Vostok 6 mission and orbited the Earth 48 times, spending almost three days in space. Fun fact: In order to join the Cosmonaut Corps, Tereshkova was inducted into the Soviet Air Force, but since the distinction was only honorary, she was the first civilian to fly in space. Two records, one trip.
