The young adult on the far left is Mike Fossum,

he is a nerd.


This is Mike Fossum today: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_E._Fossum

From family I found out that yesterday, Mike was doing this:


And if you don't believe me, check out the date on this article... http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/generic/story_channel.jsp?channel=space&id=news/asd/2011/07/13/10.xml&headline=Spacewalkers%20Retrieve%20Pump

So it's anyone's guess who you might meet and know when you are young and how they might turn out, or how you might yourself turn out, but you can guess that Mike wasn't going to gamble on his life by wasting it with nonsense and mischief, or worrying about what others were thinking of him... he was on a mission and by the looks of it he's done pretty well at accomplishing it.

Wishing him a safe return.

Now the following guy is not a nerd as he knows what's what in RL but has applied himself to the above topic by writing the following article for the Air Force Institute of Technology. He was a high school class mate of mine, and in the article he writes about Mike Fossum, the astronaut mentioned above.

And the 'guy' who wrote the article, he's the one in the middle (name left out intentionally)
