Contrary to popular belief, Valentina Tereshkova was actually the first woman in space. She was only 26 at the time, a former Russian factory worker who was picked out of 400 applicants. She orbited the Earth 48 times and spent almost 3 days in space. Everyone has their own inner superhero (or cosmonaut), even if you work in a factory, or on a farm. Pull on these cool knee high socks, and reach for the stars!
