We all know that China can Today’s achievements are inextricably linked with the older generation of scientists. It was their continuous efforts that made New China stand up. They studied in a foreign land, but they always care about the motherland., Don’t forget the original intention.
As Zhan Tianyou said: "Everyone learns and knows everything, so that the country will be prosperous and strong enough to stand on the earth." He also fulfilled his promise, After returning to China, he established the first Chinese railway—the Beijing-Zhangjiakou Railway. Similar to Zhan Tianyou is Qian Xuesen. He returned home in five years and completed two bombs in ten years. Even though he returned home with poor treatment and many difficulties, he returned without hesitation.
His nephew Qian Yongjian surprised many people and won the Nobel Prize, but said: "I am not Chinese, I grew up in the United States."
Born in a scientific family
There are two such families in the United States, one Almost all the elites cultivated by the family are elites, and almost all the scums cultivated by the family are the Edward family and the Zucker family. From this we can see the importance of family education for one’s development.strong>
The same goes for Qian Yongjian’s family background. His father Qian Xueju is an engineer; his uncle is China’s "Father of Missiles" Qian Xuesen; His brother Qian Yongyou is a Academician of the American Academy of Sciences; his uncle is an academician of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; his cousin Qian Yonggang is also the son of Qian Xuesen, a senior Chinese Engineer, also teaches at Shanghai University.
Qian Yongjian was born in such a family, and his education would not be bad. His life's achievements are also remarkable. A family of high-achieving students doomed Qian Yongjian to be extraordinary. From his birth, he has received a good education and cultivated a wide range of hobbies, Lay a good foundation for the future road to success.
Qian Yongjian, born in New York in 1952, has been in science since childhood.He showed his amazing talent, due to physical reasons, he could not exercise vigorously, and he was not involved in outdoor activities. He often stayed in his underground laboratory to do chemical experiments. At the age of 16, he won the first place in the "Westinghouse Science Talents Trial". This award is a great encouragement to Qian Yongjian, who is still a child, and strengthens his love for science.
In 1968, he entered Harvard University, received a bachelor degree in chemistry and physics in 1972, and received a degree in science from Cambridge University in 1977 . He has a wide range of subjects in science, and is not a big deal in physics, chemistry and biology. On the other hand, most of our middle school students are suffering from the torture of accepting subjects.It’s a mess, while Qian Yongjian is the opposite. The proper one is a schoolmaster, or the kind of admired by his classmates and a good schoolmaster from childhood to adulthood. strong>It is the child of another family that we envy.
After graduating from school, he took part in work and became a university teacher. He also won many awards during his time as a teacher at school.In him At the age of 40-60, he has won more than a dozen international awards and became an academician of the American Academy of Engineering. Qian Yongjian’s achievements in his life are undoubtedly remarkable. He has made great contributions to the world science undertakings. Contribution is unquestionable.
Looking at this highly valuable resume, how many people are envious and admire him. But there are so many popular people, this There is some truth to this sentence. It should be a well-respected scientist who was controversial because of his sentence when he was awarded the prize. It shocked many people in the country, and their views on him were unconsistent.
The winning words are amazing
In 2008, 56-year-old Qian Yongjian won the Nobel Prize for his fluorescent protein Chemistry Award, as a Chinese American, his award has attracted the attention of many domestic netizens. They thought that they were of Chinese descent, their ancestors were Chinese, and they were also the nephew of the great scientist Qian Xuesen. Naturally, they were more inclined to China. But his words have poured cold water on Chinese netizens. He said: I am not Chinese, I grew up in the United States.
When netizens hear him say this, they all feel that although he has made a lot of achievements, he does not have a heart of innocence and does not love the motherland, etc. As a result, Qian Yongjian’s choice has been controversial by the majority of netizens. Some people think that He is of Chinese descent and has Chinese ancestry, so he should not say that. Some people think that he was born in the United States and received It’s the education of the United States, which doesn’t have deep feelings with China.This is understandable.
As Pavlov said: "Science has no national boundaries, but scientists have national boundaries."Qian Yongjian was born in the United States and grew up in the United States. Patriotic education is also different from that in mainland China, so it is understandable to have such a view. What we should do more is to cultivate our own talents, and let him love his motherland and serve his country.
For Qian Yongjian, China is indispensable to let go of things in the blood, the United States is the place where he was born and grew up, and he has feelings. It's like being caught in a dilemma, it's hard to give up on either side.
Pavlov once said: "I would like to use my life as a ministry and engage in research and science to contribute to the birth and cultivation of my motherland. And the people. "Then Qian Yongjian is more cultivated by the United States. It seems understandable to say this. After all, he has no experience of living in China. In his perception, the United States is more like home. strong>
Poor families cannot afford to leave, hot landDifficulty, perhaps because of the plot of the hometown, it was during the most difficult period in China that scientific talents like Qian Xuesen returned to China. Because they have lived in China and their relatives are in China, their concerns are in China so they will come back desperately.
In contrast, Qian Yongjian, his parents are both in the United States, and he has nothing to worry about in China. Uncles and cousins are not close, maybe they are more often seen in scientific magazines, and the affection is not deep. So China is also an ancestral land for him. His life and other aspects cannot be connected with China, naturally, he does not have such deep feelings for China.
At the same time, Qian Yongjian believes that the development of science requires a more open environment. Only a country with sufficient freedom can train more scientists. At this point, the United States is indeed better than China, but China has also made efforts in recent years. Science is not a country’s business, but a global business, and what he can promote is not only Is a countryProgress is the progress of the world. From this, it seems that which country Qian Yongjian is from is not that important. What really matters is his contribution to the world.
Sun Yat-sen once said: "If there is a way to teach, the talent will be abundant, the customs will be pi, and the country will be strong." What we should really focus on is the education of the Qian family, which is the science of American society. Atmosphere,and not entangled in the nationality of the scientist. If we can do both of these well, we can naturally attract talents like the United States, and we can naturally cultivate more scientists, will we still lack our own pillars?
