This photo of an emergency management technician in his hazmat suit gives me goosebumps. It looks like he's the last survivor of a derelict spaceship, preparing for the last clash with the hostile alien life form that killed all his crewmates. Or maybe just an actor in a movie where that happens.

What we see actually in this stunning photo? Tech. Sgt. Timothy Cotterall, an Air National Guard emergency manager of the 137th Air Refueling Wing in New Jersey, is decontaminating himself after attempted to identify multiple biological contaminants in a simulated lab during a Global Dragon training event on March 18, 2015.
