Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for July 24, 2012-Ride Sally Ride (Vol.7, Iss.3)
Ride Sally Ride
Sally Ride became the first American woman in space in 1983. A trailblazer, Ride became one who has gone where few have gone, and as a woman she gives hope to women and girls that you can dream big and soar to great heights.
Dr. Ride died on Monday after a 17 year battle with pancreatic cancer.Ride made history in 1983 as a crew member on the space shuttle Challenger, breaking the gender barrier for U.S. spaceflight.
Ride made a second space shuttle flight in 1984, also aboard Challenger, and was in training for her third mission when Challenger exploded in 1986, killing all seven crew members. She left the space agency a year later, and served for years as a physics professor and director of the California Space Institute.
In 2001, she founded Sally Ride Science, a which is aimed at promoting math and science for girls. One of her projects was to develop a camera that could fly aboard spacecraft and take pictures for middle-school students. The fruits of those efforts include EarthKAM on the International Space Station and MoonKAM on the GRAIL lunar probes.
Today we pause and salute the work of Dr. Sally Ride and wish her God’s speed and she takes her final rest. I can hear the shouts of those young and old in fine fashion…”Ride Sally Ride” http://bit.ly/O6LVws
