A Chunk of the ISS to Be Named After Firefly

NASA is allowing the public to vote on the name for "Node 3" of the International Space Station. So what did we do? We named it after a cult science fiction show, of course!

As of right now, "Serenity" is dominating an open vote for Node 3's new name. This ship from Joss Whedon's short-lived show Firefly has 82% of the total vote, with second place going to Earthrise (with 7% of the vote).


What can we say to such adolescent nomenclature?

This. Is. Awesome.

Voting will be open until March 20th, so let's vote early and often to seal the deal for Serentiy. And don't worry Star Wars fans, we'll have your back for whenever SDI is up and running. [NASA via Discover]
