NASA To Reveal ISS Node Name On Colbert's Show This Tuesday

The mystery and pseudo-controversy surrounding the ISS's unnamed node ends this Tuesday, when astronaut Sunita Williams will go on The Colbert Report to tell the world what NASA has decided to do.

It will probably not end well for the social media savvy Stephen Colbert, whose dedicated fan base was able to trounce the four "official" names that NASA provided. NASA has all but confirmed that the node will be named Serenity, which was the top vote getter amongst the NASA-sanction entries.

However, rumor is Colbert might still get his wish, sort of, as Comedy Central is pimping the Colbert Report NASA appearance as evidence of the fact that the stuffy government space agency is going to bestow a named toilet on cable's most outspoken fake news commentator. [io9]
