    Al Bean, never the most naturally gifted astronaut, compensated with sheer hard work.

    How to understand "never the most naturally gifted astronaut"?

    It means Al Bean has the least talent of all the astronauts

    or

    Al Bean has some gift, but not too much.

    or

    Re: How to understand this sentence?

    Hello , I am The French,

    for me, Al Bean is born with some gift but maybe the others astronauts have more then he has.

    In compensation he works hard.

    Hope it's help you.

    Have a nice day.
