R.I.P. Sally Ride (1951–2012)

Catching up on a bit of news this morning, and just heard and read that Sally Ride has died at the age of 61 of pancreatic cancer.

Sally Ride was the first American woman to fly in space, a science writer, and the president and CEO of Sally Ride Science. She was pretty much fearless, resolute in her integrity, and had a boundless spirit. She'll be sorely missed in the world of science, and by her family and friends.

Rest In Peace, Sally. You did, indeed, touch the sky.
