A new generation of launch vehicles lowering the cost of access to space. Cutting-edge technologies being packed into ever-smaller satellites. A burgeoning commercial industry that’s opening new frontiers in low-Earth orbit and beyond.
These are just a few of the examples Aerospace President and CEO Steve Isakowitz gave as he made his case for why there's never been a more exciting time in space to a packed auditorium at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in February.
“Today is the most exciting time ever in the history of the space program,” Isakowitz said. “Whether you’re young or old, everybody has a role to play.”
Weaving personal anecdotes from his own career with a dynamic survey of the current space industry landscape, Isakowitz shared an enthusiastic vision with students and faculty about the untold opportunities that await in space.
Isakowitz’s remarks came as part of the Seaver Spotlight series, a biannual speaker event hosted by the LMU Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering that features leaders making great impacts in their fields.
