Four Ph.D. Students of Qian Xuesen at CalTech

The following is a post at the famous forum 9ifly.cn. I translated it to English. Please note that the word “my” in the following is not me.

Everyone knows that Qian Xuesen (Hsue-Shen Tsien) had many students, but probably not many people know the details. After my investigation, Qian had 4 students and 73 descendants at CalTech totally. Don’t be surprised. Here, the so called student and descendants are those who obtained Ph.D. degrees from CalTech (California Institute of Technology).

Note (1): The figure 73 of descendants includes 4 students; Note (2): The time that they obtained their degrees may not be accurate but should be roughly correct.
