Nasa’s Mohawk Heartthrob
When was the last time you heard of a heartthrob from NASA? Bobak Ferdowsi is the flight director for the Mars Curiosity Rover and dubbed the title of “sexiest nerd at NASA.” With all the attention he’s been getting, Ferdowsi considers it an honor and also expressed that he’s flattered by it. The NASA engineer is part of the team behind the Mars landing project who became an internet sensation when a picture of him with stars shaved into the side of his head, surfaced the web.
Dozens of women including men proposed to him on-line, even his girlfriend has not taken offence and has been a good sport. One of those of who proposed to him on twitter posed in an Elvira-esque black bikini, with a description that says “Epicurian Ultraterrestrial.” There’s also one that put a picture of herself with a v-sign to the camera. The 32-year-old Ferdowsi revealed that co-workers have been mocking him ever since.
He recalled one briefing when they put up a still from the movie Brokeback Mountain with his face on one of the cowboys – with the movie title changed to “Boback Mountain.” His mohawk haircut which was the style he thought of for the Mars mission definitely brought him unexpected fame. Besides, being able to work in NASA is already quite an accomplishment. So if you have a young, good-looking, intelligent guy with style working in one of the coolest jobs on Earth, what girl wouldn’t want him to be her man?
