The Ladies...

The First Woman in Space - Valentina Tereshkova and Vostok 6...The Russians beat us on June 16, 1963, although we had already had a group of women pass the physical and psychological tests 3 years PRIOR to the Tereshkova flight - the very SAME physical and psychological tests that selected the original Mercury 7.

These are the Mercury 13 ladies - click on any name for an individual biography.
