Sally Ride: Space Explorer, Rockin' Rocketship Lady, All-Around Badass

Today marks the 30th anniversary of Sally Ride's first trip into space... she was the first American woman astronaut and and a glass ceiling-smashing original gangsta. NPR dedicated an awesome few minutes to her on their show this morning, if you'd care to give it a listen.

P.S. One time she was on the cover of Ms. Magazine and it was excellent.
