Sally Ride - Women in Space - LGBTQ

June is Gay Pride Month


On This Day In Space! June 18, 1983: Sally Ride Becomes 1st American Woman in Space

This Pride, Inspired by Sally Ride's Legacy

Sally Ride, the United States' first woman in space, who flew 35 years today (June 18), in 1983, has inspired countless people, as she lived a life committed to science, education and inclusion. And while she only "came out" publicly as gay in her obituary, written by Tam O'Shaughnessy, Ride's surviving partner of 27 years, Ride is still the first and only acknowledged LGBTQ astronaut. Today, Ride's legacy and life story continue to inspire, as she has set a leading example, conquering what before seemed truly impossible.

Madame Pele's Hair


Once up on a myth, we learned about Mount Kilauea and the Fire Goddess Pele.

Volcanic Pele's Hair - Glassy Shards Could Contaminate Drinking Water in Hawaii  
Scientific American - June 18, 2018

Golden, sharp strands of so-called goddess hair are covering parts of Hawaii's Big Island. But what are these potentially dangerous threads - called Pele's hair - and where did they come from? The mats of Pele's hair - a product of the ongoing eruption from Kilauea volcano - consist of thin glass fibers that form when gas bubbles within lava burst at the lava's surface. In previous volcanic eruptions, Pele's hair has caused trouble for the many Hawaiians who collect rainwater for drinking water. These glass strands land in rainwater that falls on people's roofs and is then funneled into a catchment system. If the filters aren't fine enough to filter out the hair, then you can get hair in the water, which can harm anyone who drinks it.

Mexico's Winning World Cup Goal Caused Man-Made Earthquake   New York Magazine - June 17, 2018
Mexico's stunning upset win over Germany in the World Cup on Sunday may have shocked more than soccer fans. At the same time El Tri forward Hirving Lozano scored Mexico’s winning goal at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, at least two seismic sensors detected a minor earthquake in Mexico City, according to a monitoring agency run by Mexico's Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research: SIMMSA theorized that the artificial quake was caused by all the fans in the city jumping up and down in celebration of the goal, and later noted that a similar reading was detected in Lima following a goal by Peru's team in World Cup qualifier in last November.
