Firefly fans urge you to visit NASA’s poll and cast a vote to name the International Space Station’s new habitat node “Serenity.” They’ve dominated the early results – “Serenity” has received 82% of the votes to date — but there’s almost a month to go. Voting will be open until March 20th, 2009. NASA will announce the winning name in April 2009:
NASA wants your opinion in naming the International Space Station’s Node 3 – a connecting module and its cupola – before the two segments travel to space and are installed on the orbiting laboratory. 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.
Maybe it’s this generation’s answer to the campaign that named the first Space Shuttle “Enterprise.”
