NASA Kicked Colbert in his Asymmetrical Seating System?

I've ignored this story for some time, but now it has concluded. NASA won't name the new International Space Station module after comedian Steve Colbert, the top choice in the unwise attempt to select a name through public voting. They had to go to the eighth entry in the grotesque list to find "Tranquility," after the Apollo 11 landing site, Sea of Tranquility:


  • COLBERT
  • MYYEARBOOK
  • GAIA
  • XENU
  • SOCIALVIBE
  • BUDDY
  • UBUNTU
  • TRANQUILITY
  • SYNERGY
  • VISION
