NASA's doing something cool: they're letting people vote on the name for Node 3 on the International Space Station. Node 3 is a connecting module, letting space dwellers go from one section of the ISS to another.
The very cool thing? The name Serenity is winning! So I urge all BABloggees who are also Browncoats to go and make sure Captain Tightpants' ride becomes enshrined in space history. Voting lasts until March 20th, so vote early and vote often.
