Colbert Report: Stephen Receives the Bittersweet News About Node 3

The Colbert Report aired last night and astronaut Suni Williams appeared on the show to announce the official name of Node 3. Like breaking news to a 5 year-old that Christmas has been cancelled, Williams did her best to be as gentle as she could be. Fortunately, Stephen Colbert soon cheered up when he found out that the “shoes inside the box” (the new treadmill) would be named after him. As always, very funny.

Unfortunately, I can’t help but think that “Tranquility” is a little lame. It just adds to the forgettable names of the other nodes I don’t remember…

…what’s the name of that node again?

Thanks Bente for the tip off!

  1. I’m going to agree with you on the naming conventions. NASA doesn’t want a space station. It wants a floating Zen garden. If they want to attach another node, it will probably be named “Zzzz…”

    At least the shuttle names are somewhat exciting. Atlantis, Discovery, Endeavor…
