Frist American Woman in Space, Sally Ride, RIP


The Space Trip That Made 

Sally Ride A Folk Hero

The first American woman to go into space died Monday. Sally Ride was 61 and had been battling pancreatic cancer. Her historic trip in 1983 aboard the space shuttle Challenger made her an instant folk hero.

Sally Ride was a humble leader that women, men and children could respect. I wish there was some magical cure for cancer, so that someone as special as her could live another twenty years contributing to the country with her intelligence. I'm sure her family will miss her greatly, but she really left her mark. RIP and Thank you, Sally Ride

I've meet her on multiple occasions and she was truly a brilliant and amazing woman, I hope she will continue to be remembered as such.

This is a trip down memory lane for me. She was a hero. I always thought it was cool that she went into space and I am pretty sure I saw that sesame street with her in it.

The story leading up to her becoming the first American woman (and the youngest person) to fly in space was very interesting. She had actually responded to an add at Stanford that NASA had posted, where she chosen over 8000 other applicants. She was a brilliant scientist and an inspiration for women every where. RIP.
