"Becomes an internet sensation. Too busy landing a robot on Mars to notice."



This is Bobak Ferdowsi, the activity lead and flight director on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity mission.

He chooses a new hairstyle for every mission.

And every one of them look good, 'cause they're sitting on top a badass!

Bobak Ferdowsi's Mohawk Blows Up Twitter As NASA's Curiosity Rover Lands On Mars



And I can't resist one more...

5. I just noticed, Alan Boyle linked to this thread from his cosmicblog at NBC News!

I was reading Alan Boyle's article at http://cosmiclog.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/08/06/13147686-nasas-mohawk-guy-marvels-at-newfound-fame-and-mars-mission

and came across the embedded link to this thread in this sentence:
And there's a widely distributed LOL picture with the caption, "Becomes an Internet sensation ... Too busy landing a robot on Mars to notice."

4. *swoon*

I love me some hot scientists. I think it's because my history PhD brain simply doesn't understand how their science PhD brains work at all.
And there'd be some serious chemistry.

9. Heh Heh.. Yeah, it's not your Parents' JPL.

Look, a guy with long gray hair! And did you see the woman? With the bandana?

Yeah, mac, that's America. And those people just put a big hole in the lie that "we can't build things, we can't do things, we can't dream things anymore"

We can. We did. THEY did. Including the woman with the bandana, the Deadhead, and the guy with the Mohawk.
