iooxa Profile

What's behind the name?

iooxa has two meanings: “Io”, is a moon of Jupiter, discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei, an early astronomer and one of the founders of physics and the scientific method; and “oxa”, which references the process of injecting oxygen, O2.

iooxa together is a reminder to recognize how science has progressed, to give credit for past work, as well as provide breathing room to the scientific process as we move forward.
