In June 2015, we celebrate the 52nd anniversary of the first woman in space.

Valentina Tereshkova was the first woman to go into space when she flew Vostok 6 in 1963. She spent almost three days in space and orbited Earth 48 times. That was her only trip into space.

To mark this great day for all women in aerospace, WIA-Europe Leiden would like to invite you to Avenue Cocktail bar on the 18th of June from 20:00 until 22:00. Please ensure that you have eaten before you arrive.
