    That’s Eugene Levy in the middle.

  2. John Fleming says:

    The guy on the right is 60541, obviously.

  3. 60541′s nametag with photo is just so tantalizingly out of reach.

    I think the one on the left is John Many Jars.

  5. griever says:

    From the Cyborg ID number on the right, that’s obviously a young Reset Smith 

  6. Oakridge is an amazing city historically.  At the beginning of ww2 it boasted a population of about 2 thousand.  By the end it had a population of 60000 and was consuming something like a quarter of the US power grid.  It’s one of the great unknown engineering feats of that time.

    The guy on the right is obviously the 10th Doctor…

  8. Nigel Field says:

    That’s Kevin McDonald (from Kids In The Hall) on the right.

    John Yaya, John Smallberries, and John Bigbooty. I think John Parker had just stepped out for a “smoke” when this photo was taken.

    I believe the one on the right was a cellmate of Jean Valjean.

    Did anyone expect a serious answer from Boingers?

  12. umm yeah, I was kinda expecting a useful answer. I was hoping that  maybe one of these guys could be somebody’s father. But then again, seeing that most of these replies are from high school kids, that would be impossible…

    “He told me he was vacuuming the curtains in the nude, slipped off his chair, and landed directly onto this gizmotrometer.”

  14. Eoin McCarthy says:

    I’m going to say Farouk El-Baz is the guy in the middle.

    Actually, my grandfather worked at y-12, on something related to Apollo, during that time.  I could probably run the photo past him and see if he knows who they are.  It would be tomorrow before I could do that though.  He is 90 now, and is cantankerous, and recently had some cancer removed, but his memory is still good. 

    I was born around Oak Ridge and spent a portion of my childhood there.  My grandparents still live there and I live just outside town these days. Living there is interesting.  There are places you just know you are not supposed to go. Otherwise, it is a pretty normal little town.  Lots of old people though.

    AND SOLVED…allegedly, and not by me.  I just googled. 

  17. I believe that’s Woody Allen in the middle, holding our leader’s nose.

  18. Editz says:

     I’d swear that’s Conan sketch writer and performer Brian Stack:

    Sleeper has always been my favorite Woody Allen movie. Thanks!

    3 white guys not wearing respirators inspecting foreign terrestrial specimens. Expendable for data resource acquisition.

    Well duh, it’s avant band The Residents.

    That’s me holding the whatchamacallit standing right next to my good friend 60541 (it was top secret work, so we all went by our birthplace zip codes).  A later version of the $1.65 million whatchamacallit actually flew on Apollo 18… oops.
