Sheet of 20 FOREVER stamps.
America's first woman in space, Dr. Sally Ride (1951-2012), inspired the nation as a pioneering astronaut, brilliant physicist, and dedicated educator.
These stamps are based on a watercolor print of Dr. Ride by illustrator Paul Salmon, showing both a portrait of Sally, and her first launch aboard CHALLENGER on June 18, 1983 (STS-7).
Ride, Sally, Ride!
