      The first ting I built at Airbus was a cryo-cooler system which is currently flying above our heads in space on ESA’s Sentinel 3 spacecraft.
      The first thing I built as an engineer (at university) was a turbine rotor (think of a fan that you make spin by blowing on it) for a little contraption that could drag itself along oil pipes cleaning as it went using the flow of oil to power its motion.
