Correction

February 03, 2003

It was incorrectly reported in yesterday's Sun that astronaut Sally Ride was the first woman in space. In fact, she was the first American woman to go into space. On June 16, 1963, Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman in space.

The Sun regrets the error.
