Sally Ride's curiosity about the universe led her to study physics in college. While she was finishing her Ph.D., she responded to an ad from NASA announcing that they were recruiting women for the astronaut corps; out of 8,000 applicants, she was one of the 6 women selected. On June 18, 1983, Ride blasted off aboard space shuttle Challenger to become the first American woman — and the youngest American — to fly in space. Sally's adventurous nature, quest for discovery, and pioneering accomplishments inspire girls everywhere to boldly reach for the stars.
Celebrate Sally Ride and her remarkable achievements with the Inspiring Women Series Sally Ride Barbie doll! This doll is modeled on Ride's appearance and and includes authentic details on her NASA spacesuit, a helmet, and a headset. This set includes the doll, a stand, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
