59 years ago, Valentina Tereshkova proved, literally, that even the sky wasn't the limit. On June 16, 1963, she became the first and youngest woman in space. Starting with an interest in parachute jumping, she turned into a history-changing cosmonaut. If that's not proof you should dream big, we don't know what is.

My father took this photo. He was an amateur photographer and even developed his own photos, and I found this picture in his big box of photo prints."
