Help NASA name ISS Node 3

193k votes so far, and "Serenity" has 86%. There's a certain joss ne se qua in that name, wouldn't you say?

...I just can't do it. I sat here and seriously thought about it. But I just can't.

I've become convinced over the years that the ISS is a big waste of time, mostly rehashing old Skylab and STS experiments, but not doing anything practical while up there, and sorely underfunded to boot. They should be doing serious R&D, working on compounds and manufacturing processes we can't duplicate as easily (or at all) on the ground, readying us for the next stage of the industrial revolution. as it is, it's a showpiece, and not much of one at that.

If I were to suggest a name, it would probably be "boondoggle"... or, in following NASA's theme, maybe "Idiocy."

What Steve is too humble to say is: if you want a blueprint on how to do space industrialization correctly, go here

Factory Orbit

Which, by the way, is a great read!

It looks like the new node may be named "Colbert".
