Parastronaut nghĩa là gì?
Parastronaut ghép từ paralyse và astronaut -> từ này nghĩa là người khuyết tật được huấn luyện để trở thành phi hành gia.
For the first time in 13 years, the European Space Agency has announced (thông báo) a new class of trainee (thực tập sinh) astronauts, including the world’s first “parastronaut.”
He is the first candidate (ứng viên) selected for the Parastronaut Feasibility project, described by ESA as a “serious, dedicated (cống hiến) and honest attempt to clear the path to space for a professional astronaut with a physical disability”.
Issues are likely to arise when operating existing space hardware. The parastronaut study aims to determine what modifications to launch vehicles, spacesuits and other space systems would be necessary to allow a physically disabled (khuyết tật) astronaut to live and work in space.
Although his experience was largely positive, Clifford did note he had difficulty (gặp khó khăn) donning his spacesuit due to limited motion of his right arm. The human-machine interface (giao diện) may present the biggest challenge for future parastronauts.
