NASA is looking for a name for a new node, not to be confused with a noid. A node is a connecting module and its cupola and Node 3 is the newest part that will be added to the International Space Station.
Node 1 is called Unity, Node 2 is Harmony and Firefly fans have banned together to get Node 3 named Serenity, a name which actually fits quite well with the first two.
Voting is open from now until March 20, 2009 and you don’t even have to register. Just visit NASA.gov to vote for one of the four choices or write in your own (Spindrift, anyone?).
Here’s how the voting stands at the moment:
Yeah, there’s nothing like dedicated sci fi fans to sway a poll. Unless those last minute Venture Brothers fans get in on this, Serenity is looking at a sure win.
