Sally Ride

First American Woman in Space

Twenty-two years after she became the first American woman in space, Sally Ride has devoted herself to bringing the wonder of science to young people, and especially girls. She'll talk about Sally Ride Science, and share her thoughts as the Space Shuttle returns to flight. Emily Lakdawalla explains why a satellite has to run very fast to stay in the same place. Bruce Betts: (a) knows What's Up in the night sky, (b) has a Solar Sail poster for our trivia contest winner, (c) gobbles like a turkey, or (d) all of the above.
