Dr. Sally Ride, first woman in space and Professor of Physics at UC San Diego.

Future rocket scientists aren't the only ones that need a good foundation in science and math. In today's world, all students do -- but nearly two-thirds of 18 year-olds are showing up for college or career unprepared. Astronaut and UCSD physics professor Sally Ride describes her own path into the space program, and discusses the need to improve science and math education for all students -- not just future rocket scientists.
