    1. She is demonstrating how she got to be the first woman in space, too.

      • You may be more right than you realize. There’s speculation that Tatyana Kuznetsova was the favored to get this position, but personal conflicts between the women (or possibly their husbands) let Tereshkova get the spot.

        • Or maybe it was Valentina Ponomaryova, I can’t remember.

            “On 19 November 1962 selection for the flights took place. Ponomaryova and Tereshkova were the final candidates – but who would be the first Soviet woman in space? Ponomaryova had the best test results, but did not give ‘proper’ replies in the interviews with the puritanical Communist selection board. When asked ‘What do you want from life?’ she replied, ‘I want to take everything it can offer’. Tereshkova, on the other hand, intoned ‘I want to support irrevocably the Komsomol and Communist Party’. Ponomaryova also maintained that a woman could smoke and still be a decent person, and had made ‘scandalous’ trips unescorted into the town of Fedosiya while there for parachute training.”

    2. Why would she eat food from a tube before her flight? Wouldn’t she just have a normal feed before boarding, and then wait until after take-off?
