The sexy NASA scientist aka Mohawk Guy updates us on the Curiosity rover and his new haircut…in Morse code!
From Bobak Ferdowsi’s increasingly nutty Tumblr fan page.
Mission Activity Lead, Bobak Ferdowsi, was drawing a big reaction in the live chat last night during the Mars Curiosity landing coverage. Becoming a very literal overnight sensation, there are already memes and fan art being spread all around the internet. This guy is clearly the star of last night’s nerd Olympics.
For those of you who missed the live Ustream of the Mars Curiosity landing from the NASA/JPL control room last night, here it is. Traveling west toward the Martian triangle in the sky, my boyfriend and I were cruising back 75 miles an hour from the desert watching the Ustream on an iPad while eating peanuts, passing through Pasadena (home of the JPL headquarters). Talk about the future. WOW!
And NASA will be live-streaming the August 6 landing on Mars event.
