    TERESHKOVA (THROUGH INTERPRETER): "FLYING OVER MANY COUNTRIES IN MY SPACESHIP I COULDN'T HELP THINKING THAT THERE SHOULD BE NO PLACE ON OUR PLANET FOR A NUCLEAR WAR WHICH WOULD BRING DEATH AND DESTRUCTION. "DURING THOUSANDS OF YEARS PEOPLE IN LOVE WOULD GAZE IN ADMIRATION ON THE ONE SIDE OF THE MOON. AND NOW OUR SCIENTISTS AND SPACE RESEARCHERS, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE WORLD ENABLE THE PEOPLE TO SEE THE REVERSE SIDE OF THE MOON.



    "MAY I GIVE YOU MY MODEST GIFT -- IT'S A BOOK ABOUT THE FLIGHT OF TWO SPACESHIPS, VOSTOK FIVE AND VOSTOK SIX."
