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.

We note for the record that cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova was the first woman in space aboard Vostok 6 in 1963.

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.
