    Link: Sally Ride, First US Woman In Space, Dies At 61 - Space used to be a man`s world. Then came Sally Ride, who blazed a cosmic trail for U.S. women into orbit.

    Sad for her she couldn`t come out until printed in her obituary.
    But I guess heroines & role models aren`t allowed to be dykes.

    Gerry, I beg to differ, she was a lesbian - way to ladylike to be a dyke. She was bright, energetic, and truly a lovely human being. I will miss her dearly.

    Another spot in history that was claimed first by the russians in 1963 with Valentina Tereshkova.

    I told you space travel for women was dangerous.

    USSR had put at least two women into space before Sally Ride. Just sayin. Not taking anything away from Sally Ride or any of the American women that could have gotten into space sooner. That was a choice made by men. Besides, I`m never got above 50,000 feet.

    Incredible person. And, hey, she was a Valley girl! Warm thoughts to her family.

    @earplay : USSR made their first at great risk, when the US were planning and making progress they were making stunts and almost killed half their cosmonauts
