No doubt, you have heard by now, that astronaut Sally Ride passed away earlier this week.

Ride was the first American woman in space and remained committed to supporting young women interested in science fields throughout her life, through the work she did with her company, Sally Ride Science.  She broke barriers and made me believe that women were capable of anything. As a kid, I thought she was the coolest and I still do. Ride is survived by her partner of 27 years,  Tam O’Shaughnessy.
