Thomas Gautier Pesquet (French pronunciation: [tɔma gotje pɛskɛ]; born 27 February 1978 in Rouen) is a French aerospace engineer, pilot, and European Space Agency astronaut. Pesquet was selected by ESA as a candidate in May 2009, and he successfully completed his basic training in November 2010. From November 2016 to June 2017, Pesquet was part of Expedition 50 and Expedition 51 as a flight engineer. In 2019 ESA Director General Johann-Dietrich Wörner tweeted that he had proposed Pesquet for the next ESA flight to the ISS, meaning he would be the third member of the 2009 ESA selection group to fly in space twice.
