的回答:

For several days before launch astronauts and cosmonauts are quarantined to ensure they don’t get sick with a cold or other communicable disease during their flight.

在发射前几天,对宇航员进行隔离,以确保他们在飞行过程中不会患感冒或其他传染病。

Astronauts and cosmonauts have superstition based traditions that trace back to the first people to fly in space.

宇航员具有基于迷信的传统,可以追溯到最早在太空飞行的人。

For cosmonauts, that would be Yuri Gagarin. As Yuri walked to his rocket, the chief engineer gave him a smack on the rear end. That practice is still followed. Yuri also took a leak on the tires of the bus that took him out there. That tradition is still followed (by male cosmonauts and astronauts).

对于俄罗斯宇航员,那将是尤里·加加林。 当他走向火箭时,总工程师在最后一刻拍了他一下。 这种做法仍被遵循。 尤里还在把他带到那里的公共汽车轮胎戳漏了气。 仍然遵循这一传统(男性俄罗斯宇航员和美国宇航员)。

Another tradition for cosmonauts, although it doesn’t go back to Yuri, is to watch the film White Sun of the Desert the night before launch. Another more recent tradition is that a Russian Orthodox priest will bless the crew with water.

宇航员的另一种传统,尽管追溯不到尤里,是在发射前一天晚上观看影片《沙漠的白色太阳》。 另一个最近的传统是,一名俄罗斯东正教牧师会用水祝福宇航员们。

For NASA astronauts, the traditions go back to Alan Shepard. Alan had scrambled eggs and steak for breakfast, the day of his flight, so most astronauts do today.

对于NASA宇航员而言,传统可以追溯到Alan Shepard。 在飞行的那天,艾伦(Alan)曾将鸡蛋和牛排炒作早餐,所以今天大多数宇航员都这样做。

@Steven Grimm

I wonder if Alan Shepard knew he was making a meal selection for future generations of astronauts, or if it was just breakfast to him.

我想知道艾伦·谢泼德(Alan Shepard)是否知道他正在为未来的宇航员们选择餐食,或者他只想到了自己

@Andy Lee Chaisiri

“There’s the slight chance I’m going to explode, I might as well eat a steak” was probably what’s on his mind hahah

“我极有可能爆炸,我不妨先吃一块牛排”,这可能是他的想法哈哈

@ Piyush Khemka

So many superstitions for people of science? Wow…that is weird!!!

有这么科学界的人也迷信吗…哇,太奇怪了!!!

答主:

I’ve spent my life surrounded equally by scientists and non-scientists and have noticed no significant difference between their levels of superstition.

我身边一直都有科学家和非科学家,但我注意到他们的迷信水平没有显著差异。
