    Sally Ride, America's first woman in space, died today at the way too young age of 61:

    Her accomplishments went way beyond her two rides on the Space Shuttle. She will be missed.

    At a such young age, indeed. I remember learning about her, back when I had a huge interest in astronomy and NASA, and mistakenly thinking she was the first woman ever in space.
