Tam O’Shaughnessy, life partner of Sally Ride, moments before she accepts the Presidential Medal of Freedom on behalf of the first female American astronaut. Yesterday (20 Nov.) the medal was posthumously awarded to Ride for her work in science and education. Sally Ride is the first female NASA individual to be awarded this medal*.

* The Apollo 13 Mission Operations Team as a whole was also rewarded this medal, their award was presented as a group award. I have not been able to find out who the women on this team were.
