NASA Contest To Name ISS Module 197

Solarch writes "NASA is holding a contest to name ISS Node 3. Being a Browncoat myself, I should hope that the choice of names would be obvious. As of the 7:30 PM EST on 2/25, the name Serenity has over 80% of the vote. From the site: 'Node 3 will connect to the port side of the Unity Node and will provide room for many of the station's life support systems, in the form of eight refrigerator-sized racks. After Node 3 is installed, the station's crew will transfer over many of the Environmental Control and Life Support Systems (ECLSS) currently stored in various places around the station.'"

    rather than a continuation of the plot from a canceled TV show by the show's creator.

    Fixed that for you.

    I don't think you understand how strongly people feel about this show. It's a very good show, and it's a shame Fox canceled it after only one season, but in its wake came the Browncoats, an incredibly dedicated group of fans who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims (which I assume are more Firefly episodes). Here's the wikipedia article:
