Cheryl Tiegs hosts this huge meta blog that celebrates retro and vintage stuff
The now-famous photograph, which featured Cheryl Tiegs in a seemingly innocent white swimsuit, epitomized her perfect combination of girl-next-door innocence and innate sexuality.
While posing for the 1978 swimsuit issue, she took a quick dip in the water on the beach wearing a white cotton fishnet swimsuit. When Cheryl Tiegs emerged from the water, photographers—professional and amateur—flocked to her and asked her to pose for an extended amount of time—about 50 minutes. She later said she had no idea why the photographers suddenly took such an interest in her, and didn't discover why until she saw the final prints from the shoot: when wet, the suit was almost completely translucent.

Dawn is very different from past asteroid missions. We've mostly encountered asteroids by flying quickly past each object, never to see them again. Dawn is not that kind of mission. It's been doing science at Ceres for more than a year now, beginning from a position of great distance. In discrete steps, over the course of the last year, it has journeyed closer to Ceres, getting more data at higher resolution with each incremental step closer. In a way, Dawn's single mission to Ceres encapsulates several distinct missions in the initial exploration of other worlds.

Towards the end of 1961, Sergei Korolev (good read), the Soviet space program’s Chief Designer and mastermind behind the nation’s earliest space triumphs, was looking for a new first in space. Having already launched Yuri Gagarin and Gherman Titov into orbit, he needed something new to maintain the Soviets’ lead over America in space. One idea he had was to launch a woman. A female cosmonaut would send the message that the Soviet Union valued its citizens equally and give little girls throughout the nation the belief that they, too, could go into space some day.
The Central Committee of the Communist Party liked Korolev’s idea, and on February 16, 1962, five experienced parachutists became the first all female cosmonaut training group. Among them was Valentina Tereshkova (good read), a textile factory worker and avid skydiver. But more importantly, she was an outspoken supporter of the communist party who had worked throughout her life – she began helping her widowed mother support their family at the age of 10 – within the Communist system to achieve great things. She was, like Yuri Gagarin before her, the picture of success in the Soviet Union.
Valentina Tereshkova spent three days in space aboard Vostok 6, strapped to her ejection seat inside the seven-and-a-half foot wide pressurized cabin. She was wearing an SK-2 space suit. It was, for a spacesuit, a comfortable design, designed to be pressurized only in an emergency situation where the cabin pressure was lost.
Valentina Tereshkova’s mission ended after completing 48 orbits in a little under 70 hours. She used manual controls to hold Vostok steady while firing the rocket engine to slow her capsule and begin the fall back through the atmosphere. After re-entry, Valentina Tereshkova tapped into her parachutist past and ejected from the falling spacecraft to land by her own parachute
While Valentina Tereshkova has been lauded since her flight as a trailblazer for women in space – and indeed, she’s been an advocate of both women’s rights and space exploration in her post-cosmonaut career
