A Little Bit About Sally Ride:

Sally Ride was a student in the late 70’s when NASA began searching for women astronauts. She actually saw an ad in her school newspaper and decided to apply for the NASA astronaut program! She was one of only six women who were chosen for the job! In 1983 she became the first American woman to fly in space. Her job? Using the robotic arm!

A few years later she started looking for ways to help women and girls who wanted to study science and mathematics. She came up with the idea for NASA’s EarthKAM project. EarthKAM lets middle school students take pictures of Earth using a camera on the International Space Station. Students then study the pictures. What a legacy!

In 2003, Ride was added to the Astronaut Hall of Fame.
