Vice President Mike Pence succumbed to everyone’s secret museum impulse when he reached out and touched a piece of equipment clearly labeled “DO NOT TOUCH.”

The illicit contact with the critical space flight hardware occurred during the vice president’s tour of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Thursday and was captured by a Reuters photographer.

The image has now become a meme on social media, with Twitter users joking about impulse control, Pence’s policy of not having dinner alone with women who aren’t his wife, and even the famous orb photo of President Trump.

Some, like this Twitter user, just found the moment “extremely relatable.”
