Infamous "Ex_Men: Experiment Operators" Trying to blend the efforts of Research & Development laboratory scientists, aerospace engineers, and NASA misson operators was a daily battle. John Lowery, founder of Design at Work (a Houston-area graphics design firm) and creator of the conceptual WSF artwork you see here, was commissioned to produce a piece to help unify the disparate technical cultures working on the Wake Shield project. This spoof of a popular (at the time) group of superheroes still graces the walls and filing cabinets of many offices at Johnson Space Center. To this day WSF alumni speculate as to who inspired which characters. Can you find the Aggie pocket protector?
