The newest CEO of Virgin Galactic: George T. Whitesides, former chief of staff of NASA.

If that name rings any bells, it's because he's the son of Professor George M. Whitesides, surface chemistry ninja and chemistry professor at Harvard. That is one geeky/so-very-powerful family!

He does have a brother, Ben Whitesides, who is a musician in "The Joggers", a Portland-based band known for its songs containing "elements of math rock which retain a pop sensibility."

Nice, I'll have to try and see them when I'm back in Portland.

I wanna go to space.
