The Kerry campaign issued a media advisory Monday about an upcoming event with Sally Ride:
On Tuesday, June 29 at 1:30 p.m. EDT, former astronaut and the first woman in space Sally Ride will hold a conference call with reporters to discuss new Kerry proposals to encourage more women and minorities to pursue careers in science and math. Kerry will unveil the proposals tomorrow morning in a speech focused on expanding opportunity in America by strengthening education and lifelong learning – keys to success in the American economy.
Not really space policy related, but it does suggest that perhaps the Kerry campaign could use a space history refresher course. (Sally Ride was the first American woman in space…)
