I did my end-of-studies internship at the Centre Spatial Guyanais within CNES.
My mission focused on telecommunications between the launchers in flight and the radars distributed over Guiana.

This incredible Amazonian experience took me from the plenitude of the heart of the primary forest to the extraordinary power of European launchers.
From one adventure to the next, I realized a dream and pushed back the limits of my comfort zone.
