Node 3 Might be Named After Stephen Colbert

Panzor (1372841) writes "Until March 20th, Nasa has opened up the polls to vote for a name for a new addition to the space station: Node 3. Strangely enough, their 4 choices: "Earthrise", "Legacy", "Serenity", and "Venture" are not the four most popular. It seems that the poll maker did not have the foresight to predict such a strong and unified force picking the 5th choice: "Other." Therefore, the race between "Serenity" and the suggestions can only be guessed at. On March 5th, Stephen Colbert pronounced himself Scientology's "Galactic Overlord" as he passed "Xenu" following a previous suggestion to vote his own name as the new title of a node of the ISS."
