Great that Chinese taikonaut Wang Yaping and NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg are now in space to celebrate the anniversary of the flight of Valentina Tereshkova aboard Vostok 6 on June 16, 1963.

By coincidence, Nyberg became the 50th woman in space during STS-124.

Olivier Sanguy, editor of Enjoy Space, interviewed Valentina Tereshkova in 2011 regarding her return from space and the secret she kept about it.

He presents the interview now to mark the 50th anniversary of Tereshkova's flight.
