The Horror Honeys: Sci-Friday Jam - 'Valentina'

Sci-Friday Jam - 'Valentina'

She was born in '37
Grew up to join the space programme
The first female cosmonaut
In '63 her craft was launched
Valentina Tereshkova
Valentina Tereshkova
In Vostok 6 she made her flight
Orbiting three days and nights
Fifty times around the world
All alone this Russian girl...

Given that EDM band Komputer is from London, their video for "Valentina," a song dedicated to Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, feels really propaganda-y. But, you can't turn your nose up at a little history lesson, even if it comes courtesy of a really ridiculous and dated video for a fairly tone-deaf dance tune! So learn about this pioneer in the women's movement, and enjoy the hilariously cheesy early 80s FX! ~RH
