Korean astronaut So Yeon Yi recently spoke with the Space Generation Advisory Councilâ€™s Regional Coordinator for Asia Pacific, Bee Thakore, about her trip to the International Space Station.
Bee: Would you like to travel to Moon or Mars?
So Yeon Yi: Definitely! I pray that they pick me for Moon. I would love to see both Moon and Mars.
Bee: What do you plan to do now that you have attained your dream of being an astronaut?
So Yeon Yi: Before becoming an astronaut I was not as aware of the strides that we need to bring in our educational systems and how important it really is to provide the young people – students in schools and colleges with the right tools and above all, inspiration. I am considering furthering research and being very active in inspiring the young generation.
