The saying that “a woman’s place is in the home” no longer applies to the fearless ladies in space. The first woman in space was a Soviet who orbited the Earth with a male companion in 1963 and landed safe and sound after a three-day stay aboard a spacecraft. Seemingly, it was inevitable that another Soviet woman would repeat her feat. The second woman in space was Svetlana Savitskaya, a parachutist and test pilot, who served as a researcher aboard Soyuz T-7, which had a rendezvous with Salyut 7, the space station in which the longest manned orbital flight was completed.
Ms. Savitskaya’s aptitude for space travel was patent in her past experience in aviation. Holder of several women’s records in aviation, she had flown a variety of types of aircraft and made over 500 parachute jumps. Her father was a Soviet Air Force marshal, and her husband a pilot. Without any worry or doubt, she boarded the spacecraft with her commander, Lieutenant Colonel Leonid Popov, and another astronaut who was the flight engineer.
Soviet authorities announced that they were looking forward to gaining further information about the “weaker sex”, so-called in the Soviet newspaper Tass, under the stressful conditions of space travel. Sex, however, is not considered a barrier but. rather, a benefit in space, for the Soviets have praised women for their precision and accuracy in carrying out experiments.
As planned, the Americans put their first woman in space in mid-1983. Sally Ride was their choice. Ms. Ride joined the NASA programme with five other women and thirty-four men to train as astronauts in the space shuttle programme. She faces an era when space travel will no longer be a glamorous adventure but rather a common place day’s work.
