Sally Ride 1951-2012

Sally Ride died today at the age of 61. She had battled with pancreatic cancer for the last 17 months. I actually remember her flight into space aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1983. My Mom, who was always the one to get me into science fiction and outer space and the Space Program, made sure I knew what was going on. Thank you, Dr. Ride, for being one of the brave ones who inspired us to look up.
