Happy Sally Ride Day!

26 May

Today is Sally Ride’s birthday.  She was the first American woman to go into space.  This day seems especially important this year since, because the space program has been cut from the budget, it is likely that no one will be going into space for quite some time.

Here, NPR made a timeline of important women in space.
