Sally Ride A Astronaut

Sally Ride (1951-2012) was a physicist and former astronaut for NASA. She was a member of the Space Shuttle 7 crew in June 1983, becoming the first American woman to go into outer space.

The following year, in January of 1984, she taped at least four segments[1] for Sesame Street:

In documentary footage from production on Fraggle Rock, included in the Fraggle Rock: Complete First Season box set, designer Faz Fazakas recalled that Ride was a friend of writer Jerry Juhl, and claims that she practiced with the technology used in the Doozer Vehicles prior to operating the shuttle's robotic arm.
