"Astronaut plans to mix Korean soils in orbit"

News: CAPE CANAVERAL - "South Korea's first astronaut wants to mix soil from both sides of the 38th parallel onboard the International Space Station to symbolize the union between people in his country and North Korea."

Who says Korean reunification is a false dream? Ko San (pictured), who will be the first Korean to go up in space thinks Korea is one country, though divided currently. He is from the generations born after the Korean War with no memory or experience of living in united Korea, but the spirit and desire for Korean reunification live on in younger generations.
