Sally Ride, 1st US Woman in Space, to Be Awarded Medal of Freedom Posthumously
Sally Ride, the United States’ first woman in space, will be posthumously honored with the country’s highest civilian commendation and the renaming of a high-flying camera.
President Barack Obama announced on Monday (May 20) that Ride will be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedomat the White House later this year. NASA further paid tribute to the late astronaut by creating a new internship program in her name and renaming a science instrument on board the International Space Station.
Ride, who after flying in space twice went on to become a leading advocate for science education, died on July 23, 2012, 17 months after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She was 61.

“A Centaur in Disguise” by Michelle Tolo
This is the most precious Centaur art I’ve ever seen.
I was asking myself why the rider was SO FAR up on the horses’ back and then I read the title and kicked myself for not noticing. It fooled me! Hahaha
Preview 1: Manehattan
Metropolitan, dense, and populated with more tall buildings than trees, the future Manehattan sets the stage of conflict for our mysterious mare.
Technology has advanced. No longer do carriages need to be pulled by ponies, but FlimFlam technology has allowed simple, ponyless transportation. In the sky, maneuvering between tall buildings, luxury zeppelins drift high above the streets, taking the wealthy from skyscraper to skyscraper in style. Vast, interlocked tunnels and sewers, built to keep up with skyrocketing population, have become the home to every manner of creature.
All of which becomes the playground for one adept mare.
During a solar flare, magnetic field lines on the sun are often visible due to the flow of plasma—charged particles—along the lines. According to theory, these magnetic lines should remain intact, but they are sometimes observed breaking and reconnecting with other lines. An interdisciplinary team of researchers suggests that turbulence may be the missing link. In their magnetohydrodynamic simulation, they found that the presence of chaotic turbulent motions made the magnetic line motion entirely unpredictable, whereas laminar flows behaved according to conventional flux-freezing theory.
