"On June 18, 1983, a young physicist from California took her seat aboard the space shuttle and launched into history. On that date, Sally Ride became the first American woman in space as a mission specialist on STS-7. In this image, Ride monitors control panels from the pilot's chair on the flight deck."Source: NASA
I'm very happy to see the picture. A pretty woman, known to the academia as a physicist, she was on the way space by the space shuttle at that moment.
