After an absolute splendid launch in Ten Trinity Square, followed by second divine experience at The Victoria and Albert Museum, Patrons of the ArtPointFoundation granted an unforgettable Wednesday evening in the Science Museum to honour 80th birthday of Dr. Valentina Tereshkova, Hero of the Soviet Union. In 1963, Dr. Tereshkova helped launch the space age by becoming the first woman and the first civilian in space. Today she remains the only woman to have travelled solo in space.
