Farewell to A Legend

6 November 2009
 

November 1, the next day of Qian Xuesen's pass away, the sky over Beijing opened, an unseasonal heavy snow covers the land of Chinese capital in innocent white, a colour in Chinese culture associated with mourning.

A rock formation in Pingshun (平顺), Shanxi Province (山西), looks like a pair of lovers in eternal kissing posture, as if immortalising a great love story between Dr. Qian and his wife Ms Jiang Ying. (Source of photo: 张燕辉 - xinhuanet.com)

A newly built and the most magnificent Yangtze River bridge in Shanghai, where Qian Xuesen studied during his college years. Dr. Qian is like a great bridge linking the gulf between the traditional East and the modern West.

天地动容,木石有情,
鞠躬, 为壮士送行!

大雪祭国魂

天失骄子国失公,
秋雨秋风冷如冬。
更兼白雪纷飞下,
纵是苍天也动容。
生前敝履富而贵,
身后粪土尊与荣。
归来故国曾记否,
仗剑昆仑且弯弓?

泰斗坠长天,昨夜辉煌尤耀目
卫星飞广宇,今朝灿烂亦仰君

脑海帷幄,何止五师甲士
胸怀信仰,不惧百万戈兵

粪土洋官洋俸,亮节高风扬寰宇
金玉国家国民,奇志浓情遗子孙
