Meet an astronaut
South Korea’s first and only astronaut will share her story at Stanwood High School.
Yi So-yeon left Earth in 2008 to spend nine days on the International Space Station, where she conducted experiments and medical tests for the Korea Aerospace Research Institute.
She almost died on her way back, when her spacecraft’s equipment went awry. She and two other astronauts experienced nearly 16Gs of force and a rough landing 260 miles from their intended destination.
So-yeon left the South Korean space program in 2014, and had a stint as a physics teacher at Everett Community College in 2016. She now lives in Puyallup.
A limited number of free tickets are available at Sno-Isle Libraries branches in Stanwood, Camano Island, Lakewood/Smokey Point and Arlington.
The event will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Stanwood High School Performing Arts Center, 7400 272nd St. NW, Stanwood. Doors open at 3 p.m.
