Should NASA Name Space Station Room After Colbert?

I'm no rocket scientist, but I do know that if you start an open naming contest, fans of Stephen Colbert will quickly beam the comedian to first place. That's what happened to NASA when it decided to ask the public for suggestions on what to name a room in the space station, now called Node 3.

"Colbert" won the contest, but NASA still has the option to reject the write in winner. Tonight, a real-life scientist will go on the Colbert Report to share NASA's decision.

What does Stephen think NASA should do? He said: "Certainly I hope NASA does the right thing. Just kidding. I hope they name it after me."

If he won a public vote, I guess they have to. I like The Colbert Report, but I'm sure someone else's name is more deserving.

Hey it was Queen Nour talking about zero nuclear weapons, a feat almost as impossible as her ability to make more than 2 facial expressions with all that botox! There was NO ASTRONAUT!

I kind of like the ring of "Poopy McNutterButter" myself. Eh, give it to Colbert. I'm already a fan, so I'm biased, but he won it fair and square.Also, I really don't see how his show is dumbed down. If my sister's ex, who is an engineer with a master's degree and is employed by one of America's biggest military contractors still doesn't get half of Colbert's jokes, he has to be doing something right. But again, I'm a fan, I'm biased, blah blah blah. :dude:

Colbert really knows how to get his name out there. He is a publicity genius. I am sure they will name it after him.

Well for me when my friends and I discuss children and whenever we start saying we shouldn't have them until this time or that we're picking career paths that will never allow us to afford them in this economy or that we won't be fit parents based on our childhoods blah, blah, blah. I think of that movie and want to shoot myself in the foot.

Zeze, I was just kidding about what the other option was. It just seems like the point of the contest was to get recognition and interest in NASA going again, and naming it after Colbert would definitely accomplish that better than something like 'Serenity'.

Haha, yeah. I don't usually like Luke Wilson, but he was pretty good in it. That's satire I can get behind, because I feel like we're already living in it.

Organic have you seen the movie "Idiocracy", it's pretty scary.Personally I think they should name it whatever they are comfortable with. If the name "Colbert" doesn't bother them and they didn't have any significant person they wanted to name it after then I say go for it, but if it does bother them then they shouldn't. It's just a fun contest and Colbert and us fans will get over it.
