Found a 'bug' with the instant answer for 'how many people are in space right now"

I'll give the instruction on how to replicate this bug:

1) Type in 'how many people are in space right now'.
2) In the instant answer, click on 'Barry Willmore' (or any of the 6 choices).
3) You'll be directed to the search page for Barry Willmore. However if you look immediately at the search box in the header you'll find the following:
"Born and bred in the beautiful state of Tennessee, Barry has always been inquisitive. He was the walk on captain on Tennessee Tech's football team. He has piloted the Space Shuttle (STS 129) and was CAPCOM for the final shuttle mission in 2011. This humble Southerner is most excited about how his work can be used for the betterment of mankind."

Somehow I don't think that is intented to happen.

P.S - I have the header behaviour set to 'on and floating'.

That's a whacky bug if I've ever seen one. Sorry for the bad surprise--we'll look into what's causing it and attempt a fix.
