Bertrand Piccard has a frank laugh and in the first pic, where he's in the background, his eyes remind me of Albert (!?!) Bizarro. Clearly, Albert is in good company. Pierre looks respectful. It's a nice display of the two men. Very nice.
PS: I'm going to add, that if I thought Albert was full-on gay, I'd hope he'd pick a seemingly nice guy like that Bertrand (who's got great style too). Who is he anyway, does anyone know?
Apparently, a Swiss pshyciatrist and balloonist. I can only assume he wasn't there professionally. ;D en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand_Piccard Balloonist, mmm. I remember something from way back about the PAF and a zeppelin or blimp and a storm that damaged the zeppelin/blimp cancelling the whole adventure. Does anyone still remember the name of the pilot? Was it this guy by any chance?
ETA: Oh well, seems he is on the Scientific and Technical Committee of the PAF and was apparently also on Albert's wedding. Pity. I hoped he was here to study barbie. Or at least Albert. Bad luck.

he is the son of Jacques Piccard. Remember the guy with the Ballon? Famous Swiss family. Apart from that he is a psychiatrist (I'd love to know his opinion on Trashy), scientist and adventurer. He is currently working on a solar plane. I think he is also an environmentalist. Not sure, but he might be on the board of Alberts foundation...
