When First Lady Michelle Obama sits down with members of Congress to listen to her husband deliver tomorrow’s State of the Union address, she’ll be joined by another Chief Executive: Apple CEO Tim Cook. The head honcho of 1 Infinite Loop will be joined in the First Lady’s box by another notable tech figure, NASA/JPL’s Bobak Ferdowsi, better known as the “Mohawk Guy” on the agency’s Mars Curiosity mission.

Guests of Mrs. Obama will also include military families, immigration reform proponents and individuals whose lives have been affected by gun violence.

Cook isn’t the first Apple notable to be a guest of the First Lady at one of President Obama’s State of the Union addresses. She was joined last year by Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
