Colloquium “Breakthroughs Towards Aerospace Leadership”

Dear all,

We are happy to invite you to the upcoming SKOLTECH COLLOQUIUM!

When: April 18, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Where: Skoltech, room 402


Mr Jean-Frgeneste-jean-francois-photoançois Geneste, Vice-President – Chief Scientist at Airbus Group Innovations, Toulouse, France

Jean-François Geneste is a wide spectrum mathematician, physicist and engineer. Along his career he proved more than 50 mathematical theorems, designed new public key cryptosystems and zero-knowledge proof of knowledge algorithms. In Physics, he strongly criticized the inconsistencies in the discipline and proposed to solve them through the consideration of a non-Archimedean universe. This culminated in the publication of two books onf theoretical physics (2010 in French and 2015 in English). This research is going on through a brand new approach of what a symmetry is in mathematics with its consequences in physics.

In the first part of his talk Jean-François will present  a new concept of a very performant airship with at least 40 days’ autonomy at 60km/h. This concept does not need any technological rupture to be achieved, this is only an architectural breakthrough. Then he will talk about a stratospheric platform at 40km altitude which is, among others, a runway for high supersonic (M=3) civil transportation planes able to fly over land. Finally, he will describe an architectural breakthrough concept for cheap access to space which outperforms all existing devices.

If you like to participate and for further information or questions, please Liliya Abaimova
We look forward to seeing you.
