"The Space Frontier Foundation urged NASA to respect the results of a nationwide contest to name a new waste re-cycling module for the International Space Station (ISS). The Foundation proposed using either the first or second place winners of the contest: "The Colbert" (for the popular comedian) or "Serenity" (for the popular sci-fi television and film) as the official name for the module, whose purpose is to re-cycle human waste products and is the first of its kind to be flown in space."
Editor's note: Someone at SFF needs to do a little research before they put these things out. The module's "purpose" is NOT to recycle human waste - only one rack inside Node 3 does that. There are all other sorts of things there as well - life support, robotics, etc. The description of the node is obvious on the NASA page for the naming activity. Its like saying that your home exists to house a toilet because it has one.
