Stephen Colbert announced on last night's Report that he wants everyone to help convince NASA to name their latest baby after him. NASA's website declares:
NASA wants your opinion in naming the International Space Station’s Node 3 – a connecting module and its cupola – before the two segments travel to space and are installed on the orbiting laboratory. The name should reflect the spirit of exploration and cooperation embodied by the space station, and follow in the tradition set by Node 1- Unity- and Node 2- Harmony.They have four different (lame) names from which to pick, but they also have a "write in your own" category.
Nation, go vote! You have until March 20th. Here's the website. And you may want use another browser if you usually use Firefox, as it doesn't seem to work.
And lo and behold, guess what's the top pick so far?
