No, NASA won’t be fronting the money for a sequel to one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. Though we can dream!
However, NASA is looking to name the International Space Station’s Node 3 and have turned to the public for help. The statement on the NASA website is this;
NASA wants your opinion in naming the International Space Station’s Node 3 – a connecting module and its cupola. The name should reflect the spirit of exploration and cooperation embodied by the space station, and follow in the tradition set by Node 1- Unity- and Node 2- Harmony.
To stay within those parameters, the available choices are; Venture, Legacy, Eathrise, and awesomely, SERENITY! We have an amazing opportunity to impact both space and the fandom! Voting will remain open until March 20, 2009 and the results released in April. Serenity is currently in the lead with an outstanding 86% of the vote!
