The Lyrics

It's a sad day for space travel. Sally Ride, the first American woman to ever travel to space, has died at the age of 61 after a bout with pancreatic cancer. She's best known for breaking NASA's gender barrier by flying on Space Shuttle Challenger on June 18th, 1983, but she spent much more of her time guiding our future in space while here on Earth -- she founded NASA's Office of Exploration and directed its early strategy, and she later went on to lead the California Space Institute as well as teach physics at the University of California in San Diego. Her final decade saw her establish Sally Ride Science to encourage students wanting to follow in her footsteps, especially girls. Ride blazed one of the brighter trails in technology, and she'll be missed. Ride is survived by her same-sex partner of 27 years, Dr. Tam O'Shaughnessy. ~

Yes, she did and and also was an inspiration to young girls to break glass ceilings everywhere. She was not the first female Astronaut but was sandwicjed between two female Cosmonauts and one Taikonaut. As for Raumjaegerinen... not known.

Ditto, and you might also use "Ride Sally Ride" by Lou Reed.
