This was the first I had heard of this today.

Sally Ride, first American woman in space, dies - CNN.com

(CNN) -- Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space, died Monday after a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer, her company said. She was 61.
"Sally lived her life to the fullest, with boundless energy, curiosity, intelligence, passion, commitment, and love. Her integrity was absolute; her spirit was immeasurable; her approach to life was fearless," read a statement on the website of Sally Ride Science, a company she started to help teach students -- particularly young women and girls -- about science, math and technology.


Ride flew into orbit aboard the space shuttle Challenger in 1983 to become America's first woman in space. She took a second trip aboard the same shuttle one year later.
"As the first American woman to travel into space, Sally was a national hero and a powerful role model," President Barack Obama said soon after news of her death broke. "She inspired generations of young girls to reach for the stars and later fought tirelessly to help them get there by advocating for a greater focus on science and math in our schools. Sally's life showed us that there are no limits to what we can achieve and I have no doubt that her legacy will endure for years to come."
Ride is survived by her partner of 27 years, Tam O'Shaughnessy, her mother, her sister, and other family members.
"Sally Ride broke barriers with grace and professionalism -- and literally changed the face of America's space program," said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. "The nation has lost one of its finest leaders, teachers and explorers. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sally's family and the many she inspired. She will be missed, but her star will always shine brightly."

I remember how I thought she had the perfect name for the place she had in history. I think it was People magazine that had her picture on the cover with the headline "Oh, What A Ride!" Pretty sad that she's passed on.
Peace.

Did anyone see what Google has posted today? It's Amerlia Earhart.

Is that some kinda female aero dap? or a mere coincidence?

I don't know what that is but it's Amelia's birthday today so that's why they have that google doodle.

I've had that song (Mustang Sally) in my head all day.

Apparently Sally's partner of 27 years wont be recieving any of her federal benefits because they were not married.

I'm sure if they were allowed to marry they would had. After all those years, they were stuck with each other. 27 years! How many people can say that?
