Can anyone give me more information about this photo, or a link to a high-res version?

I want a large print of this picture on my wall in a pretty bad way. I'd also like to know more about the photographer. Hive mind?

Wow, I have no idea how that happened.

And then Wiki gives me Valentina Tereshkova

If that helps at all.

Also, here is a larger copy, linked from that boingboing post.
Tineye is just awesome at this sort of thing.

I don't know anything about the photograph, but if it's of a real-life astronaut, it could be Judith Resnik. It doesn't really look like Valentina Tereshkova (eyebrow arch).

Here's a shot from a Time-Life photoshoot where she's wearing the same helmet.

WOW Thanks everyone! It's definitely Anna Fisher. The link that smitt posted has a color shot from Time Magazine of her in the same helmet from a different angle. zamboni's link has the biggest version I've seen so far at 1050x1226

Also, I'm so glad you guys showed me Amazing

I cannot believe they would let her hair loose like that in a helmet
without a skullcap. This is a terrestrial publicity shot, whoever it is.
Here's Anna Fisher suited up for reals.
