US still leading in number of women in space

18 June 2013 was the 30th anniversary of America's first woman into space. Unfortunately, 'Dr. Sally Ride passed away last year at 61. Out of the 57 women who have been there thus far, 45 are from America. Svetlana Savitskaya,'the first woman in human history who walked in space and also second USSR woman in space,'is still around in Russia. She holds another honour of being in space twice ('in 1982 and 1984').
