She left the space program in 1987 and joined the faculty at UC San Diego as a professor of physics. “In 2001, she founded her own company, Sally Ride Science, to pursue her passion for motivating girls and boys to study the STEM fields – science, technology, engineering and math,” according to NASA.”The company creates innovative classroom materials, programs and professional development training for teachers.” Ride was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer early in 2011 and died July 23, 2012.
