“As a technical manager on scientific parabolic flight campaigns, my mission is to provide technical support and advice on the design and safety analysis of experiments in the highly specialized environment of a parabolic flight. Each new experiment I am involved in will potentially lead to a scientific discovery, but it will definitely be an emotional discovery for the investigators on board our flying laboratory.
