Remembering Sally Ride

Remembering Sally Ride

So sad to hear about the loss of Sally Ride.  She made many young girls believe that they too could go to space.  Here’s some of the shit she had to go through when she first went to space.  This is from her NY Times obit.

But there were still rough spots. Speaking to reporters before the first shuttle flight, Dr. Ride — chosen in part because she was known for keeping her cool under stress — politely endured a barrage of questions focused on her sex: Would spaceflight affect her reproductive organs? Did she plan to have children? Would she wear a bra or makeup in space? Did she cry on the job? How would she deal with menstruation in space?

Here’s a homage about women in space in honor of Sally Ride from Charmax76.

Thanks for making girls dream for the stars.
