    Sally Ride (First American Woman in space) has died after a 17-month long battle against pancreatic cancer. She became a household name after her historic flight on Space Shuttle Challenger in 1983, and then used her high-profile to encourage kids, especially young girls, to pursue science, math, and engineering careers. Sally, you will be dearly missed.

Sally Ride was the first American woman in space June 18,1983 on space shuttle Challenger and is a former NASA Astronaut. Her 2nd shuttle flight was again on Challenger aloft in 1984 for an eight day mission and was preparing for her 3rd mission when Challenger exploded in 1986. She was appointed to the Presidential Commission that investigated the Challenger accident and subsequently moved to NASA headquarters as an assistant to the administrator for long-range planning. She retired from NASA.

Actual questions asked by People Magazine to Sally Ride: Q: “Will the flight affect your reproductive organs?” A: “There’s no evidence of that.” Q: “Do you weep when things go wrong on the job?” A: “How come nobody ever asks (a male fellow astronaut) those questions?” RIP, Sally.
