Thanks for posting this. I was living in Japan when Sally Ride flew into space. Everyone in Japan knew her name. A few years later, Japan, too, got its own first female astronaut, Chiaki Mukai. RIP.

Gone too soon. Wonderful video at the link. I especially appreciated her comments about the fragility of the thin royal blue line of Earth's atmosphere.

A sad ending to a truly extraordinary life. She will certainly be remembered. And missed.
