Sally Ride became the first American woman in space aboard Challenger nearly 20 years after the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, reached orbit aboard a Soviet Vostok spacecraft. George McCoy commemorated Ride’s flight with this pointillist rendition of the shuttle for the Museum’s “Looking at Earth” art competition in 1985.
