Sally Ride only flew twice and departed NASA afterChallenger.
Instead, I had this image of Sally Ride and the other post-docs, just a few months earlier, bebopping through the student union building in a save-the-whales T-shirt andaccidentally seeing the NASA astronaut selection announcement on the bulletin board and throwing in an application on a lark.
I recall an early incident of telling a joke to a TFNG audience including Sally Ride that had the wordtits in it.
Over lunch in the cafeteria I got to listen to Pinky Nelson and Sally Ride and the others excitedly discuss their work of validating robot arm malfunction procedures, developing spacewalk procedures in the WETF swimming pool, and getting down and dirty with STS-1 issues.
