Very nice. I remember reading a fascinating magazine article about Resnik and her life sometime after 51-L, which I will try and locate at some point - seems like she was pretty awesome, I'm sorry I never got to meet her.


Please do, I would love to read it! And yes, she was an amazing woman.. And pretty hysterical by Mike Mullanes' accounts of her :)

Thanks, Ash!  Very nice tribute.

If I'm remembering correctly, while Judy was not the first American woman in space, I believe she was the first person -- of any gender -- of the Jewish faith to fly in space.  In this irrationally divided and contentious world, I think that is a rather special thing.

Although I think Boris Volynov was the first ethnically Jewish person in space, I am not sure about his religious beliefs

Thank you Doug! Glad you are enjoying this!

I believe you are correct! From what I have read on Judy, she wanted to simply be reffered to as an astronaut. She didnt like the 'female' or 'Jewish' labels that were attatched to her.
