Science Fiction is not short of awesome feats, but what about real life? There's plenty of heroes who have done awesome stuff in space, what feats do you think deserve recognition?

First woman in space, only woman to fly solo in space... and over 120 parachute jumps, including night jumps into the Volga!!!  
This woman is the definition of BadS

Was selected for flight due to labourer origin and political background; failed the flight program; confused the ship orientation and blamed the sensor malfunction; had in-flight health problems with food consuming, vomiting, menstrual disorder; on landing had shared the saved food between the local dwellers possibly to hide the violation of the scheduled nutrition.

After the flight, Korolyov said "No baba woman, colloq. in space anymore, while I'm alive".

Was married to A. Nikolayev (Vostok-3) on Khrushchev's initiative. Later divorced.

Soyuz-T-13, Dzhanibekov, Savinykh. It's one thing to avert a disaster, to survive a disaster... but to march straight into one, when the station in question is already dead?

My vote goes to Alan Sheppard, not for any particular incident, but because he was was an all-round 'cool dude'.

Project Mercury did not have a smooth beginning. Just a few weeks after astronaut selection, an unmanned Project Mercury rocket launched at Cape Canaveral failed spectacularly, exploding after liftoff as the astronauts watched. Shepard’s response: "Well, I’m glad they got that out of the way."

The first rebels of the galactic empire.

Also the first Orphans of the Universe.

Quote

Staff on the ground hadn't got to know this crew as well as its predecessors, because they'd been busy overseeing the first and second missions while the Skylab 4 astronauts were preparing for theirs.

And of course, the first space mass strike, making them founders of the space trade unions history,
