Since we're discussing US astronauts of Irish descent in another message, what about those with Chinese roots? A Chinese correspondent once asked me about it.

I came up with the following list of names:

  • Taylor G. Wang
  • Franklin Chang Díaz
  • Edward Tsang Lu
  • Leroy Chiao
Any other names?

  • Shannon Lucid was born and held captive in Shanghai, China.

  • Bill Anders was born in Hong Kong (though while it was under British rule).
Otherwise, I think your list is complete.

That doesn't give Lucid or Anders an ethnical Chinese background, but thanks for the addition!
