What do you think about the second youngest woman flying to the ISS? She's an Asian female who has attracted many admirations.

Hm......firstly, her name is Soyeon Yi  (Yi is her family name), and she is the youngest woman to fly on ISS, and the third youngest woman in space overall.

Hm#3..........I've no idea what you are talking about. Her name tag says 'Soyeon Yi', she writes her own name in English 'Soyeon Yi', and whilst there maybe other tranliterations of her name, such as Lee or Li, this what she calls herself.

Thank you for the correction. Her family name is Yi, Li or Lee. She is now a famous person thanks to the many space agencies who selected her. I don't think she will take a leading in Astronautics like China's Yang Liwei.
