Dr. Eugene Trinh

Dr. Trinh was the first Vietnamese American to travel in outer space.  The first Asian American astronaut was  Ellison Onizuka, who died aboard Challenger.

  1. Thank you! I was browsing, and saw the Dr Trinh and have spent a very enjoyable 15 minutes discussing space and fighter planes with my son who is Vietnamese-Cambodian. Youtube has some great clips of Dr Trinh’s work as well. Alas, he’s still not interested in being an astronaut, unless he can get space guns of some sort to fight alien invaders.
