What? You were sleeping last night instead of tuning in with the rest of the world’s space/science fans to the livestream of the NASA/JPL Mars landing of rover Curiosity?! Have no fear: Twitchy provided comprehensive live social media coverage of the event.

More importantly (for the ladies…and a few men), Twitchy Team diagnosed the late-night outbreak of NASA Mohawk Guy Fever. Bobak Ferdowsi, the flight director of the Mars mission, captured the Twitter world’s attention with his “Stars and Stripes” mohawk — an in-house tradition.

Get your fill of the now Internet-famous space celebrity here.

As many fans joked throughout the night’s Curiosity twitter stream, it’s a good thing NBC wasn’t in charge of tape-delaying the Mars Landing 9 hours later in tomorrow’s prime time and forcing us all to sit through unbearable commentary from Bob Costas or Seth Meyers.

Small favors…
