Astronauts: May 2015 Archives

Sally Ride: Behind the Google Doodle that marks the late space pioneer's birthday, Washington Post

"Sally Ride, this trailblazing astronaut turned physics professor, for so long keenly studied, and then for so long taught, the laws of bodies in motion, as one thread in her lifelong work in science and technology. So it's especially fitting that Google unveils a "Behind the Doodle" animation, as we get to see Ride's own inspiring life-trajectory in motion. Sally Ride, in so many ways, still seems right out of central casting, as if the tale of an American space star was dreamt up in Los Angeles where, in fact, she was born."
