在国际空间站工作的宇航员能获得多少报酬?How much does an astronaut working on the ISS get paid?

Not too much!  Truthfully, we only get a small “per diem” for our time on the International Space Station (ISS).  I believe my bank account had a deposit for about $172.00 US after my 152 days in space!  That comes out to about $1.20/day!  But when you consider that we have room and board accounted for (provided), and we are not going out for dinner and drinks every night, it’s probably a reasonable (but cheap!) government estimate. 

并不是很多。说实话,在国际空间站(ISS)上,我们得到的只是少量的“每日津贴”。 我相信在我呆152天之后,我的银行帐户将会多出172.00美元的存款! 每天大约是$ 1.20! 但是,当您虑到不必支付食宿费用,加上我们每天晚上都不出去吃晚饭和饮料时,这可能是政府的合理估计了(但便宜!)。

Our MI&E (meals, incidentals and expenses) don’t amount to much while we are sailing around the Earth at 17, 500 mph!  Overall, we receive our normal annual salary whether we fly in space or not, and –as you can clearly see– we don’t get much extra when we do fly.

当我们以17500 mph的速度在地球上航行时,我们的MI&E( meals, incidentals and expenses ,膳食,杂费和开支)并不多! 总体而言,无论我们是否在太空飞行,我们都将获得正常的年薪,而且-正如您可以清楚地看到的-当我们飞行时,我们不会获得太多额外收入。

I recall while on ISS talking this subject with my Russian crew mates.  While not divulging too many details, I learned that their annual salary was about $6000 US.  For their 6-month stint on board the ISS, they would make 10 times that salary! 

我记得在国际空间站与我的俄罗斯机组人员谈论这个问题时记得。 虽然没有透露太多细节,但我了解到他们的年薪约为6000美元。 但他们在国际空间站工作的6个月中,他们的报酬将是正常薪水的10倍!

Now you know why they are so interested in flying multiple times.  It can be a big advantage to their pocket books!  In addition, if they performed tasks that weren’t on the originally developed timeline/manifest (a manual Progress docking for example), they would also receive additional funds.  I speculated that this was another reason why they were very cordial with the ground, no matter how upset they were in orbit… they didn’t want to upset anyone and jeopardize their pay.  Too bad the US didn’t do it that way… I might have kept my mouth shut a bit more!

现在您知道了他们为什么对多次飞行如此感兴趣。 这对他们的收入很有帮助! 此外,如果他们执行的任务,不在最初制定的时间表/清单上(例如,手动进行的对接),他们还将获得额外的资金。 我推测这是他们对地面控制非常友好的另一个原因,无论他们在轨道上有多沮丧……他们不想让任何人感到沮丧,这样可能危及他们的薪水。 不幸的是,美国没有那样做……我可能应该闭嘴了!

A recent Robert Frost/NASA JSC answer on Quora gave more exacting details on salaries for  US civilian/military astronauts and Russian cosmonauts.  I suggest you check that answer as well.

罗伯特·弗罗斯特(Robert Frost)/美国国家航空航天局(NASA)的JSC最近对Quora的回答给出了有关美国民用/军用宇航员和俄罗斯宇航员薪金的更详尽的信息。 我建议您也看看该答案。

Remember, that I flew on ISS way back in 2007, so the numbers have probably changed (gone higher).
请记住,我是在2007年乘坐ISS的,所以这个数字可能已经改变(越来越高)。
