WIA-E Bremen invites to Valentina’s Tribute at Olbers Planetarium

Dear all,

after the flight of Yuri Gagarin in 1961, Sergey Korolyov, the chief Soviet rocket engineer, came up with the idea of putting a woman in space. On 16 February 1962, Valentina Tereshkova was selected to join the female cosmonaut corps. Out of more than 400 applicants, five were selected.

On June 16, 1963, aboard Vostok 6, Soviet Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova becomes the first woman to travel into space.

WIA-E Bremen in cooperation with Olbers-Planetarium Bremen, is organizing a special session inspired to Valentina and Moon.

With the entertaining support of an English speaking researcher an event of 1 hour will be made for WIA-E focusing on women and astronomy, Moon geology and future exploration plans.

Due to the particular event and organization the following rates are applied:

  • WIA-E Member : free entrance
  • Not a WIA-E Member : 3 euro

The event will be followed by an offered drink.

If you would like to participate, please register before 10th June by sending an email to us.

Please register on time and inform us in case you will be not able to attend after registration.
