I'm just reading of the passing of Dr. Blankson. Quite sad. My condolences to the Blankson family. I initiated conversation with him about writing his memoir and we exchanged some emails subsequently. Unfortunately we never got to start. We in Ghana are proud of his achievements in Ghana. May his soul rest in peace

Isaiah, I am just coming to terms that you have left us. We exchanged texts few days before that you were recovering and looking forward to us collaborating on a new and exciting project. I would miss your guidance, your mentoring, your kindness, your patience, and your desire to teach others and share your knowledge. We would crack jokes and your entire body would laugh! The glint of knowledge that reflected in your eyes! The richness of your thoughts. You were my inspiration and pride. I wish you a safe and peaceful passage......at light speed! May your memory always be a source of joy and inspiration to us all.

Isaiah Blankson was a Giant in his profession and NASA's key man in Hypersonics. His wisdom as a Senior Technologist, will be missed. Moreover, Isaiah was always open to discussions and assistance to others with valuable lessons for those just learning of the complexities of hypersonic vehicles. But his expertise was boundless. They varied from his views and development of ground and surface radar systems to his development of clean water, to the use of air-ships (balloons) to carry fresh grown produce over the jungles to the cities for both consumption and export. Isaiah's goodness, sense of humor and laughter was a precious part of my day at NASA, as my door was always open, day and night, to all, and Isaiah was a routine visitor. I enjoyed Isaiah very much. We talked openly of our faith in God and how it sustained us through some difficult times at NASA. There are just some people who change one´s life for the better and Isaiah did just that for so many of us all. Still, I know he is now in a much better place of peace and joy, united in the eternal care of our Lord God. With peace, love and joy to Isaiah and his family Robert (Bob) and Kathleen (Kathy) Clayo Hendricks 1 Dec. 2021

Isaiah is sorely missed by those of us who had the pleasure and the privilege to know and work with him. He was an extraordinary researcher, administrator, and educator, and beyond this was simply a very decent, great, and good man. My wife Christine and I are holding all of his family in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you, Isaiah! You were and will always be an inspiration! Dick "Dr Hypersonic" and Christine Hallion
