Thinking about Sally Ride today. She was the first American woman in space, and she died on Monday of pancreatic cancer. I just read the New York Times obituary about Dr, Ride. Did anybody else cringe at the questions she was asked before her first space mission? I don’t know if I would have endured them so patiently. Hooray for trailblazing women!

Did you ever want to grow up to be an astronaut?
