Although I love "The Colbert Report!", NASA has this posted on their website.

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.


Steve needs to get busy promoting more Unity and Harmony on his show to have a crack at it.

Oh and I voted for Colbert too!

It would be interesting to see the actual number of votes for each of the NASA generated names vs "COLBERT".

The linked article comes close:


"So instead of NASA's suggested choices — Serenity, Legacy, Earthrise or Venture — the space station's new addition may wind up with the name "Colbert."


The count by mid-Tuesday had votes for the comedian just shy of 115,000 and Serenity trailing at 98,641. More than 451,000 people have voted."

NASA will take into consideration the results of the voting. However, the results are not binding on NASA and NASA reserves the right to ultimately select a name in accordance with the best interests of the agency, its needs, and other considerations. Such name may not necessarily be one which is on the list of voted-on candidate names. NASA’s decision shall be deemed final.
