[su_row][su_column size=”3/4″]Alexandre Mangeot is a French aerospace engineer. He holds a master degree in mechanical from ParisTech university. The master has been concluded with the participation at the summer school of the Community of Ariane Cities, in Hambourg. He participated to the rewarded study about adaptation of Ariane 5 to human space flights. He has been hired by CNES (French space agency) for a 3-years research grant to obtain his PhD. Hybrid space propulsion motors have been studied under both experimental and numerical approaches. During the last two years, he worked in a start-up to design the lightest aircraft economical seat of the market. He was mainly in charge of the design of the seat accessories. In November he will participate to the MDRS Crew 143 as a finalist for Ma365 mission. During free time, he enjoyed paragliding and travels[/su_column] [su_column size=”1/4″]Mangeot[/su_column][/su_row]
