Sally Ride: Astronaut profiles the life and career of the first U.S. woman in space.

On June 18, 1983, Sally Ride made history as the first U.S. woman to take part in a space mission. Although Ride had always displayed a knack for science and math as a student, she was equally passionate about Shakespeare and tennis. Despite being encouraged to become a professional tennis player by Billie Jean King, Ride's passion for science triumphed, leading her to become one of the pioneers of NASA's Space Shuttle program. Renowned for her work as a professor of physics, Ride is also the author of several children's books, the founder of several science-education initiatives, and a participant in the commission that investigated the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.
