‘Sally Ride – Life on a Mission’ was an interesting read. While rated juvenile, I would suggest that this book is better suited for teenagers to adults. Sally Ride, physicist and engineer, was the first American woman in space in 1983. After working in Aerospace / Space testing for over 45 years, I can say that is was a good walk down memory lane.
