(Newser) – The name of the new life-support node for the International Space Station will be announced tomorrow night on The Colbert Report by a NASA astronaut, InformationWeek reports. At the host’s urging, Colbert fans stuffed online ballot boxes to name the unit, though NASA doesn’t have to comply. “I certainly hope NASA does the right thing,” he said. “Just kidding, I hope they name it after me.”
