While the Curiosity landing on Mars is certainly a big piece of news in and of itself, many people seem preoccupied with something a little closer to home: a member of the ground crew, known to many only as ‘Mohawk Guy’.  Mohawk Guy, AKA Bobak Ferdowsi, has become famous on the internet practically overnight due to his smile, Iranian heritage, and most of all, his hair.  Bobak’s twitter account went from only a few hundred followers to 40,000 as the livestream of the Curiosity landing progressed.  He has been receiving marriage proposals from many women he hasn’t even met, but he already has a steady girlfriend (sorry, ladies).  On his sudden internet stardom thanks to his unique hairstyle, Bobak is slightly surprised, but says it’s okay “as long as it encourages more people to go into science”.
