•, Francis Pellicciaro
Steve Isakowitz, the president of Virgin Galactic, a space tourism company, spoke to a crowd of roughly 275 people at Knowlton Hall Thursday.
“I wish I was an undergraduate at Ohio State,” Isakowitz, an Ohio native, said. He said he is driven by his passion for innovation and is impressed with how fast engineering has grown at OSU, as well as the quality of the students involved.
“There’s sort of a common theme of what I’ve tried to achieve in my career – it’s I love innovation,” Isakowitz said.
Virgin Galactic is owned by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, a venture capital company, and Aabar Investments PJS, an investment company, and is “on track to be the world’s first commercial spaceline,” according to an OSU press release about Isakowitz’s lecture.
