RT @Dr_ThomasZ I met Florbela Costa at @maxonglobal today. She managed the delivery of 6 (tiny!) electric motors for the #Ingenuity helicopter now on Mars & actively supporting @NASAPersevere. With her colleagues in 🇺🇸, 🇨🇭, and beyond, she is part of the team that created this success. 🚁 👏 https://t.co/AtLIVeJQJt
