Illustration for article titled Stephen Colbert Outsmarts NASA, Gets Personalized Room In Space Station

This is why you don v10_small"/>Stephen Colbert and his mob of fans helped clinch the final votes for naming NASA's brand new Space Station room, beating our favorite, "Serenity."


NASA held an online contest to determine the name of their new international space station room. After urging his audience to write in, Stephen Colbert swept the nominations, even with a Firefly reference on the ballot.

All I have to say is, well done, Colbert — you've just outwitted NASA, and I can't think of a better punchline than getting your own personalized room on the international space station. I can't wait to see how NASA will explain this name to other countries. Sadly, there is a chance NASA will change the name as they have final veto approval. The new room will be launched later this year.
