Remembering Sally Ride

Remembering Sally Ride

Astronaut and scientist Sally Ride passed away on Monday. We take a look back at her career and consider her legacy.

Sally Ride's place in history was assured when she became the first American woman in space. But her legacy and influence extend well beyond that milestone. Her career opened doors for women and inspired thousands of young girls. We remember her career and consider her legacy.
