From the Wikipedia, is a biography of deceased Challenger astronaut Judy Resnick:

LifeResnik was born in Akron, Ohio and attended Hebrew school. Judith A. Resnik has one brother, Charles, four years younger. Her parents were Marvin, an optometrist, and Sara Resnik. A graduate of Firestone High School in 1966, she excelled in math and played classical piano. While at Firestone she achieved a perfect SAT score and was the lone female to do so that year. She received a B.S. in electrical engineering from Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University in 1970, the year she married fellow student Michael Oldak. They divorced in 1974 because Michael wanted children; Judith wanted to focus on her career. Resnik then earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 1977 at the University of Maryland. After graduation from Carnegie Mellon, she was employed at RCA as a design engineer, and later worked with various NASA projects contracted to the company.

While working toward her doctorate, Resnik was affiliated with the National Institutes of Health as a biomedical engineer. Later, she was a systems engineer with Xerox Corporation.


Resnik was selected for the astronaut program in January 1978, serving as a mission specialist


After her remains had been recovered from the ocean floor and handed over to her family, Resnik was cremated. Her ashes were scattered in the Atlantic Ocean near the area w she died on the Challenger shuttle accident.

The crater Resnik, located within the Apollo impact basin on the far side of the Moon, is named in her honor.

A dormitory at Carnegie Mellon is named in her honor and t is a statue commemorating her on the grounds. The school library at Firestone High School, Resnik's high school alma mater, was also named after her.

During her college years at Carnegie Mellon, she was bestowed as a Delta Tau Delta sweetheart due to her relationship with fraternity brother Michael Oldak, who she later went on to marry. Ever since her death in the Challenger Space Shuttle, the brothers of Carnegie Mellon's Delta Beta chapter of the fraternity perform an annual ceremony to honor her memory.

Fairlawn Elementary School, a school that she attended in her hometown of Akron, was renamed to Judith A. Resnik Community Learning Center when it reopened in December 2006. T is also an elementary school in Gaithersburg, Maryland named in her honor, having been opened in 1992. Judy Resnik Drive, a street in Randolph, NJ, was also named after Resnik.
