I had the honor of meeting Col. Bykovsky in Brussels in 1998. A real gentleman. CAVU!

Unless I (and the internet) are mistaken, Valentina Tereshkova is the last surviving Vostok cosmonaut.

By a sad coincidence, I was thinking about the Vostok cosmonauts last night and reflecting on the fact that only two still survived. Now it is one.

As my chum Francis French pointed out to me, the Vostok cosmonauts all died in the order in which they flew (which will one day include Tereshkova).

Forever is a long time... But Cosmonaut Bykovsky's record for the longest solo spaceflight may stand beyond anything we can now imagine.

Except Tereshkova wasn't chosen with the original group of 20 or so cosmonauts. She and the other women cosmonauts were chosen separately.

That is splitting hairs. She was one of the pioneer cosmonauts and flew the Vostok 6 mission. I hope she will be the last survivor of Vostok for a long time.

I had the privilege of meeting cosmonauts Bykovsky and Tereshkova, and I am saddened by the passing of yet another pioneer. They are few in number now.

I have visited Star City many times over the years and met all the cosmonauts. It is always sad to see these guys go. Replaced by younger ones. Just a fact of life. Valery Fyodorovich did better than most.

No it isn't. Tereshkova has her place in history but it's not as part of VVS Group 1. And I don't think this is the right thread for this discussion.
