See? You don't have to be ugly to be famous in science. ;) Well ... the crying longhaired guy is less known...he should have had pink hair, so now we would know his name ;) ...
Yes, because being noticed is important. Screw the science, let's all have strange haircuts to appease those that don't find science interesting.
I think it a very enriching society when we can be more individually expressive without prejudice to a persons looks. A pretty car on the outside says nothing about the vehicles working performance. 
If the mohawk brings attention to science and/or NASA, why not. Maybe they'll come for the 'hawk and stay for the thumbnails.
Now we need to have afro guy, mullet guy, and pink hair girl on the team.
