WWWTP? – Mohawk Edition

February 14th, 2013

Bobak “The JPL Mohawk Guy” Ferdowsi dyed his hairdo several weeks back to celebrate the discovery of chloromethane on Mars:

Very nice, though I’m not a big fan of the atomic radii. That turquoise chlorine atom should be huge—4 times the diameter of the red hydrogens.

You just can’t trust engineers these days…

    Yes, I think the incorrect relative atomic sizes completely throw you off. Plus the colors are totally different from what chemists are used to.

    By the way you should consider amending your flawed picture post titles to WTFWWTP. I think some of them deserve that title.

    He landed the Mars Rover on Mars. Also, he’s hot. Your argument is invalid.

    So all three hydrogens are the same color? The middle one looks more orange than red, but your mileage may vary. I would have assumed that he at least got that much correct.

    @excimer: Alright. I’ll let you have him.
