cass, can you not

A veritable travesty!

NASA named the new International Space Station module Tranquility. Note that it *isn't* neither of the two most voted for names, Colbert and Serenity, either of which would have been awesome. If NASA can't deal with what the public wants, they shouldn't *ask* what the people wants.

Instead, they will name the station's second treadmill the Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill, or COLBERT.

Hah. That won't stall fans for long. I predict that in less than ten years NASA will be named the Space Travel, Analysis, Reconnaissance, Foment, Long-range Exploration and Engineering Team.
