Philip Bond – portraits of women astronauts

Illustrator and comic book artist Philip Bond has posted a marvelous set of portraits of women astronauts in his Flickr Gallery.

“Valentina Tereshkova orbited the Earth 48 times during
her three day spaceflight in Vostok 6 in 1963. First woman in space!”

“Jan Davis made her first of three spaceflights on Shuttle Endeavour’s STS-47
mission alongside Mae Jemison and, contrary to NASA policy, her husband
Mark Lee. Twentieth woman in space!”
