Join us for a statue unveiling of Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space. This program will be open to the public at 12:00 p.m.
Today marked the launching of the seventh space shuttle flight. This particular shuttle flight is unique in several respects. It’s the first space flight of an American woman -- Dr. Sally Ride, another example of the great strides women have made in our country…I wish Dr. Ride and her fellow crew members the best of luck in their bold journey.
