One of the streets of the city of Tsiolkovsky near the Vostochny cosmodrome will be named in honor of the first woman-cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, said the head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin.

«We propose to name one of the streets of Tsiolkovsky in Your honor» — said Rogozin, speaking at a meeting to Tereshkova.

She agreed with this proposal.

«I think the decision was made», — said Rogozin.

Currently, the Tsiolkovsky, named in honor of the founder of theoretical cosmonautics, there is Queen street — the chief designer of rocket technology, and the world’s first cosmonaut — Gagarin.
