He is qian Xuesen’s nephew, why he has no feelings for China, what kind of growth history?
Tsien is the nephew of Qian Xuesen, the father of China’s missiles, and the winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in chemistry.As a Chinese to receive this award, many people in China feel excited and excited.People seem to have transferred their respect and love for Qian Xuesen to this Chinese-american scientist, hoping that he can continue to shine in scientific research.However, Tsien then sent a chill through the nation by publicly declaring that one’s ancestry does not determine one’s identity and that I am an American scientist, not a Chinese scientist.In fact, his ancestors are all Chinese. Qian’s father, Qian Xuesen, was financially poor in his early years and was always supported by Qian xuesen’s father. Later, due to historical reasons, he went to the United States.With Chinese blood in his veins, tsien’s father and qian xuesen’s family have deep roots. However, tsien tried to distance himself from China after winning the Nobel Prize, which caused controversy.Some say he has forgotten his heritage, while others say he has nothing wrong with speaking as a native American.So what is tsien’s growth history, why does he have no feelings for China, and should we criticize him?Tsien has a family history to start with. His father and Tsien are Cousins of a grandfather, three years younger than Tsien.Qian Xuesen’s father Qian Junfu often helped his cousin’s family and took the initiative to pay the tuition fees of Qian Xuesen, treating him as his own.Qian xuesen and Qian Xuesen have studied and lived together since childhood. They both graduated from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.Qian xuesen went to the United States for further study, and Qian chose to stay at Tsinghua as a teaching assistant.Always do not interfere with the brothers choice of Qian Junfu has suggested that The moment of money to study abroad, learn a skill, return to serve the motherland in the future.Following in Qian’s footsteps, Qian xuesen passed the examination to study abroad in the United States and went to study aeronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a working student.After finishing his studies, Qian xuechou once returned to China to manufacture airplanes. Later, due to historical reasons, he came to the United States and chose to become a citizen of the United States. He became a senior engineer of an American broadcasting company.Qian Xuesen went through many hardships and hardships to return to the motherland, and later became the father of China’s missile, famous shock China.Since then, Qian Xuesen and qian Xuesen’s family have been separated from each other.Tsien was born in New York in 1952 and acquired American citizenship at birth.He inherited the good genes of his family and was particularly interested in scientific research from an early age.As a young man with asthma, Tsien rarely took part in outdoor activities. Instead, he locked himself in his basement, conducting scientific experiments with bottles and cans.Once he and elder brother Qian Yongyou research and development of explosives, nearly a big accident, this thought will be blamed Qian Yongjian has been praised by his father, and moved his laboratory outside, continue to support his research.His eldest brother is no ordinary man. Tsien earned a doctorate in biophysics from Oxford University in 1970 and was named a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences in 1997.Growing up in such an environment, it was only a matter of time before Tsien became a leader in scientific research.In Roger tsien and his fame is really early, when he was 16 attended American Westinghouse science talent competition, the competition is known as the Nobel Prize, in high school of Roger tsien vulnerable to thiocyanate with metal corrosion investigation project won the championship at a stroke, the award for young Qian Yong alive fame in the United States.Not surprisingly, he enrolled in the chemistry department at Harvard University.Tsien earned a bachelor’s degree in physics and chemistry at the age of 20, and then went on to earn a master’s degree at Cambridge University, where he excelled in his research on dye molecules that detect calcium ion concentrations.Five years later, Tsien completed a PhD and post-doctoral fellowship at Cambridge University and worked as a professor at the University of California, Where he carried out research in biochemistry.During this time Tsien met Wendy, an American girl, and the two married but never had children, raising a stepson together.Tsien was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1995, two years before his elder brother.In 2008, Tsien won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on GFP, which used jellyfish GFP to develop a set of color probes that could be used as molecular markers to better track how proteins encoded by target genes are distributed in cells.The invention sent shockwaves through the biology community, with people praising Tsien for lighting up biological cells.It is well known that the proportion of Chinese Nobel laureates is very small, and the major international media coverage of Tsien’s story inevitably mentions his Chinese roots.This would have been an undeniable fact, but the following year tsien received an honorary degree of Doctor of Science from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and publicly declared that I was an American scientist on this grand occasion.He also asserts that he was born and raised in the United States and does not speak much Chinese.Tsien said that an open society and a free environment are necessary for the birth of a successful scientist, which led to the suspicion that he was alluding to the domestic research environment.Everyone has the right to choose, but there is no need to deny their blood. Grandparents and parents were All Chinese. Is it so difficult to accept this?Would you be where you are today if there wasn’t a great scientist silently supporting your parents?After tsien Yongjian made a series of important scientific research achievements in the United States, The American people also once investigated his family background, they were afraid that Tsien Would sneak back to China like Tsien Xuesen in those days.But americans were reassured by the investigation, because the family seemed to have given up on returning to China after arriving in the United States, and they and Qian xuesen made a very different choice.The Americans were able to bestow high office and grant Tsien large sums of money for scientific research.From tsien’s point of view, he was born and raised in the United States, and has not received Chinese education since childhood. Naturally, there is no deep affection with the motherland.He was right to insist that he was a scientist.Tsien’s uncle is a professor at THE Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his father is a senior engineer, and his eldest brother is also a member of the American Academy of Sciences and a professor at Stanford University.His family is a highly educated family, living a prosperous life in the United States, which is also the result of personal struggle.At least tsien Yongjian, who is brilliant in scientific research, has never done anything to harm The Chinese people. A few words or two speeches need not be too concerned. After all, Tsien’s nephew is not equal to Tsien xuesen.Qian Yonggang, the son of Qian Xuesen, still does not regret his father’s decision to return to China. The special era wasted his youth. When Qian Yonggang went to college, he was already 34 years old, and when he got his master’s degree, he was already 40 years old.If his father had stayed in the US, Qian yonggang might have been able to work hard and make achievements in scientific research like his cousin, but qian xuesen and his family have made admirable choices in front of national interests.Tsien, who died in 2016 at the age of 64, received mixed reviews in China.If you like, please follow me and share more stories about people and real events.
