Sally Ride Aboard NASA T-38 Trainer

Astronaut Sally K. Ride, STS-7 mission specialist, takes one last look at familiar training environs before taking off from NASA's Houston facility in a T-38 jet aircraft, destination: Florida and the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) on June 15, 1983. After a few days of preparation at KSC, Dr. Ride and four other astronauts will be the first NASA five-member crew to fly in space as they liftoff in the Challenger from Launch Pad 39A. The mission specialist is positioned in the rear station of the jet, piloted by astronaut Robert L. Crippen, STS-7 commander. The T-38 fleet is kept at Ellington Base near the Johnson Space Center (JSC). Dr. Ride passed away due to Pancreatic Cancer on Monday, July 23, 2012..Credit: NASA via CNP
