That means an awful lot to me. ^^

And the end of the drama. He didn't get the node, but he did get something else.

Sigh. Disappointing. They didn't reward the write-in vote winner with the node name. Ok, fine.

They didn't even pick one of the four NASA-suggested names. So... they selected the 8th most vote-getting name of Tranquility? Which, pardon my confusion at the article's lack of clarification, was a write-in vote it seems?

So you don't pick the write-in vote winner. You don't pick the next-highest vote-getting name of Serenity. You don't even pick any of your own four suggested names. You pick... the 8th highest write-in vote name of Tranquility?

Chalk another one up for retardation!

At least he gets the Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill (COLBERT) and both sides get some lolz, I suppose.

I think it would've been funnier if he had gotten the toilet.

It wasn't a, as far as I know, contest to actually determine the names, just a poll to find what names were popular or see what other people suggested; in the end, NASA was still going to pick whatever it liked. I guess it just happened that the write-in votes suggested Tranquility, which NASA hadn't thought of and apparently considered because of its connection to the past.

I wonder what Colbert has to say about it...
