Every left-brained dude needs a right-hand man, so here's a salute to some notable bro-bro teams who rocked science...

Neil Armstrong & David Scott: '66 was a good year for the boys of Gemini 8--in March they headed for the moon and performed the first docking of two vehicles in space. Scott was about to be vetted as a moon-walker just like Armstrong, but a stuck thruster intervened and Mission Control ordered the duo's return. They reentered the earth's atmosphere and were plunged into the Pacific & the annals of bromance.
