每日英語跟讀 Ep.K037: Taiwan-born astronaut chosen for Artemis lunar mission

On Dec. 10, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced the list of names of 18 astronauts who will take part in the Artemis moon-landing program. US Vice President Mike Pence, who is also chairman of the National Space Council, introduced the 18 astronauts at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The astronauts, half of whom are women, will soon commence training for the Artemis moon-landing program.

美國國家航空暨太空總署十二月十日公布「阿提米絲」登月計畫的十八名太空人名單。兼任國家太空委員會主席的美國副總統麥克·彭斯在佛羅里達州甘迺迪太空中心介紹十八名太空人,當中半數為女性。他們將為「阿提米絲」計畫展開訓練。

One of them is 47-year-old male astronaut Kjell Lindgren, who was born in Taipei on Jan. 23, 1973 to a Taiwanese mother and a Swedish father. He emigrated with his family to the Midwestern US but spent most of his childhood in the UK. After graduating from senior high school, he was admitted to the US Air Force Academy, where he majored in biology with a minor in Chinese and received a bachelor of science degree in 1995. He gained a master of science degree from Colorado State University in 1996 and a doctorate of medicine from the University of Colorado in 2002. In 2007 he received a master of public health from the University of Texas Medical Branch, where he completed his residency in aerospace medicine the following year.

其中一名四十七歲的男性太空人林其兒,於一九七三年一月二十三日出生於台北市,其母親為台灣人、父親為瑞典人,隨家人遷居美國中西部,大部分的童年時光則在英國度過。他高中畢業後考進美國空軍學院,主修生物、副修中文,一九九五年取得學士學位。一九九六年取得科羅拉多州立大學碩士學位,二○○二年又獲得科羅拉多大學醫學士學位。二○○七年取得德州大學醫學分部公共衛生碩士學位,翌年完成太空醫學住院醫師訓練。

Lindgren was chosen to be a NASA astronaut in 2009 and served as a flight surgeon for the STS-130 space shuttle mission. He joined the Expedition 44/45 mission on July 22, 2015 and stayed on the International Space Station for 141 days before returning to Earth on Dec. 11 of the same year. He is the first astronaut to have been born in Taiwan.

林其兒在二○○九年入選為太空總署太空人,曾任「STS-130」太空梭任務航空軍醫;二○一五年七月二十二日,參與遠征「44/45」任務,在國際太空站待了一百四十一天,同年十二月十一日回到地球,是史上首位在台灣出生的太空人。

Two other NASA astronauts with connections to Taiwan are Taylor Wang and Leroy Chiao.

He completed a seven-day space flight on the Challenger space shuttle from April 29 to May 6, 1985.
