“We are pushing boundaries in physics and technology” - Brian McCann, CEO of Intergalactic
In their conversation, they discuss the most recent push for innovation in the aerospace industry and how Intergalactic, in a lot of ways, is pioneering this innovation by "pushing the boundaries of physics and technology." According to Brian, "the aerospace industry moves too slow; we need to move quicker." To illustrate the most recent develops in the aerospace industry, Garrett and Brian discuss the capabilities of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) aircrafts. "[The JSF] is not meant to be a dog-fighting aircraft," Brian stated, "It's a super computer."
