SPACE: Sally Ride to Get a Postage Stamp

Sally Ride

Sally Ride will be featured on a Forever Stamp next year, USPS announced.

The first American woman in space and the first known LGBT astronaut will be honored on the postage.  John Lennon and Mr. Rogers will also get their own stamps.

USPS will also release a stamp for the Lunar New Year with a “Year of the Dog” stamp,  an “O Beautiful” stamp for the song “America the Beautiful” and will mark the 200th anniversary of Illinois’ statehood with its own stamp.

Ride, who died in 2012 from pancreatic cancer, was honored in the “Women of NASA” special-edition Lego set with her own Lego figure.
