Later, in the early teens, I used to ride my bike every Saturday morning to the nearest airport, ten miles away, push airplanes in and out of the hangars, and clean up the hangars.

后来,在十几岁的时候,我习惯于每周六早上骑自行车去十英里外最近的机场,推飞机进出机库,清理机库。

I woke up an hour before I was supposed to, and started going over the mental checklist: where do I go from here, what do I do? I don't remember eating anything at all, just going through the physical, getting into the suit. We practiced that so much, it was all rote.

我早一个小时就醒来了,开始仔细检查精神检查表:我该从这里走到哪里,我该怎么办?我一点也不记得吃过什么东西,只是做过体检,穿上西装。我们练习了那么多,都是死记硬背。

And I think that still is true of this business - which is basically research and development - that you probably spend more time in planning and training and designing for things to go wrong, and how you cope with them, than you do for things to go right.

我认为这项业务基本上是研究和开发,你可能会花更多的时间在计划、培训和设计上,为出错的事情,以及如何应对它们,而不是为做正确的事情。

I'd like to say I was smart enough to finish six grades in five years, but I think perhaps the teacher was just glad to get rid of me.

我想说我很聪明,在五年内完成了六个年级,但我想也许老师只是很高兴摆脱了我。

Whether you are an astronomer or a life scientist, geophysicist, or a pilot, you've got to be there because you believe you are good in your field, and you can contribute, not because you are going to get a lot of fame or whatever when you get back.

无论你是天文学家、生命科学家、地球物理学家,还是飞行员,你必须在那里,因为你相信你在自己的领域很好,你可以做出贡献,而不是因为你回来后会获得很多名望或其他什么。

You know, being a test pilot isn't always the healthiest business in the world.

你知道,做试飞员并不总是世界上最健康的职业。

I didn't mind studying. Obviously math and the physical science subjects interested me more than some of the more artistic subjects, but I think I was a pretty good student.

我不介意学习。很明显,数学和物理学科比一些更艺术的学科更让我感兴趣,但我认为我是一个相当好的学生。
