Was shocked when I heard this. It seems like only yesterday when she made that historic flight. A sad day for NASA and can't remember her without thinking of that song: One of these early mornins, Gonna be wipin' yo weepin' eyes. The people who admired her are doing just that. R.I.P. Capt. Sally K. Ride, Phd. United States Air Force.

"Space used to be a man's world." -- Not for the Soviets, it wasn't. They put a woman in space twenty years before America did. Rest in peace, Sally Ride, but it would have been nice for women's time in space to come sooner.
