Wilder than any Jackie Chan adventure!
Dr. Yi Soyeon, Mechanical Engineer, Biotechnologist, ISU Alumni and first South Korean Astronaut was in attendance at the September 2019 SSI 50 gathering and she took the podium during lunch on day two to give us all an amazing story of her rise through 36,000 candidates to the true Top of the Hill.
You may have heard a lot of Astronaut and Cosmonaut stories in your career but this is one that really stands out. Inspiring and often just plain funny, Dr. Yi’s short talk packs a big message and is great for the entire family to watch together. (That sounds like a commercial, but in this case it really is true.)
Recorded September 10th, 2019 at The Space Studies Institute’s SSI 50: The Space Settlement Enterprise, held at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.
