Meat & Potatoes Podcast

Apr 25, 2023

In the 200th episode of Meat and Potatoes, Garrett Clark sits down with Brad Plothow, Chief Growth Officer at Intergalactic. Intergalactic is an Aerospace Thermomanagment Systems Operator currently based out of St. George, Utah. 

Intergalactic specializes in creating products and systems that help regulate temperatures anywhere in the aerospace industry. According to Plothow, managing temperatures is extremely important as even a slight change in temperature can alter human behavior, so having a space team or a jet pilot in perfect temperatures can be the difference between failure and success of a mission. In addition, when we finally establish bases on Mars, these thermomanagement products are vital because the temperatures on Mars can swing by 70 to 80 degrees.
