On June 16, 1963, aboard Vostok 6, Soviet Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman to travel into space. After
48 orbits and 71 hours, she returned to earth, having spent more
time in space than all U.S. astronauts combined to that date.

Before her selection for the Soviet space program, Tereshkova
was a textile factory. She joined  the
Air Force as part of the
Cosmonaut Corps and was commissioned as an officer after
completing her training.

Almanac: "Like a Rolling Stone" - CBS News

By the spring of 1965, Bob Dylan’s presence in the world of
music was beginning to be felt well outside the boundaries
of his nominal genre. Within the world of folk music, he had
been hailed as a hero for several years already, but now his
music was capturing the attention and influencing artists like
the Byrds, the Beatles and even a young Stevie Wonder. 
With Dylan as a direct inspiration, popular music was about to
change its direction, but so was Dylan himself. On June 16,
1965, on their second day of recording at Columbia Records’
Studio A in Manhattan, he and a band featuring electric guitars
and an organ laid down the master take of the song that would 
make that change: “Like A Rolling Stone.” It would prove to be
“folksinger” Bob Dylan’s magnum opus and, arguably, the
greatest rock and roll record of all time.

It was the fourth of 11 takes that day that yielded the six-minute-
and-34-second recording that very nearly didn’t become a big
hit single.
