STAR CITY (Moscow Region), June 7 (Itar-Tass) - Professionals, but not tourists, should fly in space, believes Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space.
"I belong to professional cosmonauts. I believe specialists should fly into space at the present stage," Tereshkova said at a press conference in Star City on Friday.
She noted the first space mission was long ago, and much was done in the space area, but much was not studied yet.
Many years will pass before people begin to fly in space on tourist tours, the woman cosmonaut believes. In her view, only specialists, who can be useful, should fly on space missions.
