The ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet made the announcement at a press conference taking place on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower in Paris on Thursday, 12 September 2019. Among the foremost French ESA astronauts to share his experiences with the general public, in particular through his social media posts, Thomas Pesquet has helped to raise awareness among French people of the social and economic value of scientific research in space. In keeping with his values - from the protection of the environment to the condition of our life on Earth - he has decided to work shoulder to shoulder with the 800 volunteers of Aviation Sans Frontières (Aviation without Borders). Thomas will help communicate the organisation’s missions to the general public and will become its new patron.
