A star is born: Who is that NASA hottie with the patriotic mohawk?

Twitchy told you about Bobak Ferdowsi, the NASA hunk and mission flight director with the patriotic “Stars and Stripe” mohawk earlier tonight during our live coverage of the Curiosity rover landing. The landing is over, but hearts are still afire as Bobak Fever grows.

Mohawked science dude just made a lot of new fans tonight. #Curiosity

I'd let that be-mohawked NASA dude land his rover on my red planet any time. #MSL

— Jodi (@MsArataJ) August 6, 2012

Ok. How many folks out there want to boink a hot, mohawked scientist silly right now?

Everyone watching from the Ardent West Science Center is crushing on Bobak Ferdowsi, @nasajpl's mohawked systems engineer.

And it looks like he’s got some male fans, too:

Ferdowsi’s Twitter follow count exploded tonight:

@RodneyRamsey Gotta admit, Mohawk dude's kinda hot. He'll have groupies now. We'll see him on Science Channel's "Behind the Science" someday

Here he is talking about Saturn’s rings:

@tweetsoutloud You are Internet famous bro. You are forever known as NASA Mohawk guy! Congrats all around!

Gotta love when social media decides what’s buzzworthy and when — instead of, say, the time-warped dinosaurs who may get around to it after the next sleep cycle:

Please don't tell me how the Mars landing went. I'm going to watch NBC's coverage of it tomorrow in prime time.

— Paul Ogata (@PaulOgata) August 6, 2012

Genius! RT @mikerotman: I'm excited to watch the Mars landing tomorrow night on NBC!

— Josh Negrin (@joshnegrin) August 6, 2012

RT @johnmoe: No one tell me how the Mars Rover landing goes! I'm watching next Thursday's coverage on NBC!
