Toulouse – 24 March 2023

With great sadness, we share that our colleague, co-founder and – most importantly – our friend Jean-Jacques Favier passed away last Sunday. Dr. Jean-Jacques was the 6th French astronaut to have gone to space, and a worldwide recognized scientist, especially in ISRU technologies. He was an inspiration for all of us, and played a key role in getting Maana to where we are today. Thank you JJ for sharing your passion and dreaming big with us. You will be hugely missed.
