A Woman’s NASA Rejection Letter, 1962

Hilary Clinton also wrote a letter that year asking about how to become an astonaut and received a similar response.

Sixteen months after this letter was written, Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman in space, piloting the Vostok 6 around the earth 48 times. She spent almost three days in space, logging more flight time than the combined times of all American astronauts up to the date.
