Reddit users aren’t the only ones who have a thing for Bobak Ferdowsi, the 32-year-old “Mohawk guy” who worked on NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover landing. Monday, President Barack Obama joked he’s been thinking about emulating him.
Ferdowsi was “one of the many stars of the show last Sunday night,” when the rover landed, Obama said in a televised phone call with scientists of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, the group who designed and landed the rover.
“In the past, I’ve thought about getting a mohawk myself, but my team keeps discouraging me,” he joked. “Now that he’s received marriage proposals and thousands of new Twitter followers, I’ll have to go back to my team and see if it makes sense.”
