Statue of Sally Ride, first American woman in space, to be unveiled at Cradle of Aviation

A statue of the first American woman to fly into space will soon stand near where the first lunar landing spacecraft were built, just as NASA works toward landing the first woman on the moon.

The Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, New York will host the monument to Sally Ride, who as a NASA astronaut made history flying on the space shuttle in 1983. The statue of the late astronaut will be unveiled during a public ceremony on June 17, just one day shy of the 39th anniversary of Ride’s first launch.
