My name is Louis de Gouyon Matignon, I am 30 years old and I am French (Paris); feel free to contact me! I have a PhD in space law (co-supervised by both Philippe Delebecque, from Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, France, and Christopher D. Johnson, from Georgetown University, Washington D.C.).
CEO of the publishing house LGM éditions, I have by the past been politically invested on subjects such as minorities (Gypsies, Inuit and Basques), Africa or North Korea. Passionate about linguistics, I have notably published three dictionaries. Specialized in environmental law, I graduated from the French universities Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas and Paris-Saclay. I participated in the International Space University Space Studies Program in 2019.
I regularly write articles on the website Space Legal Issues so as to popularise space law and public international law. CEO of Toucan Space and Gama, I believe that private companies have to play a more decisive role in the exploration and exploitation of outer space, and that law has to evolve in order to guarantee an ever-more securing environment for space-related activities.
Toucan Space is the first company in the world allowing people to send any object to space or the International Space Station (ISS).
Gama makes the imaginable possible. Thanks to low-cost, reliable and scalable solar sails, we are redefining deep space access. Designed to meet your mission requirements, our line of spacecraft allow new missions previously considered too expensive or complex to launch. Our technological breakthroughs, paired with recent disruptions in the launch industry, unlock opportunities in the solar system of an unimaginable magnitude.
