Geraldyn (Jerrie) M. Cobb (March 5, 1931 – March 18, 2019)

(Fox News) – According to reports, America’s first female
astronaut candidate who pushed for women in space but
never reached its heights has died at 88. Pilot Jerrie Cobb
died in Florida on March 18 following a brief illness.

In 1961, Cobb became the first woman to pass the grueling 
astronaut testing. Altogether, 13 women passed the arduous
physical testing and became known as the Mercury 13. But
NASA already had its Mercury 7 astronauts, all jet test pilots
and all military men.

On this day in 1970, Apollo 13 blasted off on a mission to the moon
that was disrupted when an explosion crippled the spacecraft. The
three astronauts onboard consisted of James A. Lovell, Jr., John L. Swigert, Jr., and Fred W. Haise, Jr. All three managed to return
safely to Earth on April 17, six days after launch.
