Oh man...that is some sad news.
 
2012-07-23 05:29:03 PM
After retiring from NASA, Sally used her high profile to champion a cause she believed in passionately--inspiring young people, especially girls, to stick with their interest in science, to become scientifically literate, and to consider pursuing careers in science and engineering.

Cheers to you, Ms. Ride. There aren't nearly enough like you in the world.

Ride is survived by her partner of 27 years, Tam O'Shaughnessy

And to add a little Fark style levity to this, holy crap is that not the most Irish name in history? haha

Only because said partner's mother's maiden name is O'Shanter.

\in other news, is it just me or was that one of the least publicized lesbian couples ever?

Shame. Wait...what did she do with her Mustang?

Another victim of pancreatic cancer.

Fark.

RIP Space Lady

Pancreatic cancer is a biatch, ain't it? No symptoms until it's too late, generally no specific reason why you get it, and a prognosis of 6 - 12 months. That's some scary shiat.
 
2012-07-23 06:36:18 PM
Ah, Pancreatic cancer. She probably wore a black turtle neck on a stage one time. It's the strongest correlation I've found.

How doth the hero strong and brave, 
A celestial path in the heavens pave.

Go, Sally, Go

Good night, space lady.

You saw more with your own eyes than 99.9% of us ever will.

That bites.

Still, I was hoping for the headline "Sally Rode".

Successful people normal* don't have run around with chips on their shoulders.

*Exceptions include NFL(aka national felons league) and NBA

I like how you ramp up from zero to complete douchebag right out of the gate

Oh man, first JP Patches and now Sally Ride...my childhood is getting further and further distant.

I was trying to come up with a Billy Joel related headline but got frustrated and surfed some porn instead.

all you have to do is ride around Sally.
Ride , Sally Ride.

First US woman.

The first woman was cosmanut Valentina Tereshkova, who beat Sally Ride into space by two decades. (June 16, 1963 vs June 18, 1983.)

2012-07-23 06:42:10 PM
I wonder if tshe had a final countdown before she died.
 
2012-07-23 06:42:52 PM
Another one gone from the lyrics of "We Didn't Start The Fire"
 
2012-07-23 06:44:08 PM
I wonder how well her company was doing. Would be tough trying to sell science curricula in the USA these days.

drop a dollar in the box for a LGBT cause today.
 
2012-07-23 06:44:09 PM
Huh, had no idea she was a lesbian. Doesn't make a difference tho, she's still (or was) awesome.
 
2012-07-23 06:44:14 PM
RIP Sally Ride. She was a truly a pioneer in flight, just like Hellen Keller.
 
2012-07-23 06:44:45 PM
RIP Sally Ride, your bravery will not be forgotten.

Fark pancreatic cancer. It took my sister in about the same amount of time.

Does anyone else remember a parody/tribute song based on Blues Image "Ride Captain Ride" that came out in 1983 with the chorus "Ride Sally Ride?" As soon as I heard the news, that popped into my head and I cannot find any listing of it anywhere... Help an earwormed brother out...
 
2012-07-23 06:46:53 PM

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: RIP Sally Ride. She was a truly a pioneer in flight, just like Hellen Keller.


And she wrote that famous diary while hiding in an attic, I think.

/srsly - very influential woman for those of us who remember the hulaballoo and were inspired by her.

It's a sad state of affairs that young women today have no one to look up to like my generation did with Sally Ride. True pioneers of the female persuasion are, sadly, too few and far between.

Are Astronauts at greater risk of contracting cancer?
