Out of 1.2 million votes, Colbert got 230,549 votes vs Serenity, which had about 40,000 less votes. But Colbert fans, don't be too happy yet: NASA may not name the module Colbert after all because they reserved the right to turn down the winner.
They are considering it, though. If I were NASA, I would totally do it on one condition: Get Colbert to have a two-minute NASA segment on every program. Nothing like trading geeky poetry for free advertising and promotion of the space program, specially if it's funny as only Colbert could do. [Physorg]
