RIP Sally Ride, The First American Woman In Space

Pioneering American astronaut Sally Ride died today after a battle with Pancreatic cancer. She was 61. In 1983, she became the first American woman to travel to space. But that's not all.

At 32 she was also the youngest American to travel to space at all.

What an incredible life. Our condolences go out to her friends and family.



    Heard the news this morning.

    A very sad day indeed, for one who gave so much, and who excelled in their chosen field.

    "Go with throttle up", Sally.
