Behold! The C.O.L.B.E.R.T.!

Steven Colbert recently won an online poll to have the newest module of the international space station named after himself. NASA, however, declined to use his name, instead opting for "Tranquility." A compromise has been achieved, however: the treadmill inside of the room will be named the Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill, or C.O.L.B.E.R.T. Truly, this is a great day for the United States space program!

Edit: Now with patch!


  1. LOL, what is it with NASA and acronyms!? Does anything just have a name?

  2. Hmmm.. good question. Nasa loves their acronyms!
