‘Sally Ride’: America’s Pioneering Woman in Space

July 18, 2014  | Read More »

It’s sometimes hard to remember that Sally Ride, born in 1951, faced many obstacles, yet pioneered great changes for women. As Lynn Sherr, an ABC News reporter who covered NASA’s space-shuttle program from 1981-1986 writes in her interesting new biography, “Sally Ride: America’s First Woman in Space” (Simon & Schuster, 320 pp., $28), not only was Ride America’s first woman in space, ending “an all-male cowboy culture” of astronauts, but she also earned a doctorate in physics and was the first woman “CapCom” (capsule communicator) on a shuttle mission. She served as flight engineer on the seventh shuttle mission, taught at universities, wrote children’s books, started her own business, was a board member of several major companies, and became the only person to serve on government commissions that examined both the Challenger and Columbia shuttle disasters.
