We have a new Hunk of the Day for you — one you probably hadn’t heard of until the Curiosity rover landing. Bobak Ferdowsi works for NASA but he isn’t the typical dweeby scientist.

Ferdowsi caught the public eye with his cool mohawk with yellow stars on the side as he manned the controls for the rover. Apparently, he changes his hairstyle for every mission.

We have some swoon-worthy pics of Ferdowsi in action. And if you want more Ferdowsi, take a look at the video below of him talking about Saturn’s rings. We don’t even care what he’s saying — we just can’t tear our eyes off of this cutie. We may not know what a science planning engineer is, but do know that this hunk is smokin’ hot.
