Meet 'Mohawk Guy,' star of the Mars landing

Forget Rick Moranis glasses, starchy button-ups and pocket protectors.

Meet the new generation at NASA: Bobak Ferdowsi, better known as "Mohawk Guy." Ferdowsi was spotted wearing a red-and-black mohawk with yellow stars dyed on the sides of his head during the U.S. space agency's overnight landing of its Mars rover, "Curiosity."

The Internet quickly turned him into a meme, superimposing text like "The Mohawk That Landed a Rover on Mars" and "Becomes an Internet sensation ... Too busy landing a robot on Mars to notice" over his images.

full story and pics...

Mars landing went 'flawlessly,' scientists say

The 10 science instruments aboard Curiosity are in "perfect health," and testing and calibration are under way, NASA said Monday.

I was following the landing and was so thrilled to hear that it landed successfully.

Here's an incredible image of Curiosity in its landing phase shot by the orbiting Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.



All science instruments appear to be in excellent health. Curiosity will set up its high antenna and its camera mast later this evening so be prepared for some amazing images to stream back tomorrow.
