Colbert Nation strikes again: The top vote-getter in NASA’s contest to name a new room on the international space station is Colbert. According to the AP, 230,539 people voted for the satirist’s name, beating out NASA’s most popular suggestion, Serenity, by over 40,000 votes. The contest rules say that NASA will “take into consideration” the results of the vote, but that those results are “non-binding,” so it’s not clear yet what name the agency will select.
