Rocket Lab release
Limited Edition Commemorative patch - First Woman in Space

Rocket Lab and Planet have teamed up to create a commemorative patch to mark the 55th anniversary of the first woman in space — Valentina Tereshkova. Proceeds from all patch sales will be donated to the Brooke Owens Fellowship Program, which provides paid internships and executive mentorship for exceptional undergraduate women in aerospace.

The original patch was worn by Tereshkova when she was launched to space in 1963 and spent almost three days in space, orbiting Earth 48 times in her space capsule, Vostok 6. Tereshkova was the first person to wear a mission emblem on her spacesuit, although it was hidden from view. The limited edition Rocket Lab and Planet patch features a dove and the same color scheme as the original patch, with the addition of the Pleiades constellation, also known as the Seven Sisters, to represent women in space.

  • Commemorative patch - First Woman in Space.
  • Embroidered onto a heat pressed application backing.
  • 130mm high x 78.8mm wide
