May 26th

Just one holiday for you today. And that would be Sally Ride Day.

Sally Ride Day honors the first American woman to go into space. Dr. Ride accomplished this feat as a mission specialist aboard STS-7, the second flight of the Space Shuttle "Challenger". STS-7 was launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on June 18, 1983.

Celebrate Sally Ride Day by learning more about the U.S. space program and NASA. Better yet, we encourage everyone to push for a more active and dedicated U.S. space program and policy.
