Itzhak Bentov was born in Humenné Czechoslovakia back in 1923, his parents were killed in Nazi Concentration camps. He escaped to British Palestine. He joined the Israeli Science Corps one month before Israel declared statehood in 1948. He designed Israel’s first rocket for the War of Independence.
He moved to the United States in 1954, settling in Massachusetts becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1962. In 1979, he was killed as a passenger aboard American Airlines Flight 191 that crashed at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.
What you may not know about Itzhak is that he was also an inventor. He invented the steerable cardiac catheter, helping pioneer the biomedical engineering industry. He was an early exponent of what has come to be referred to as consciousness studies, authorizing several books on the subject. Trouble is I could not find anything on him about his education, pity.
