Name the new spacestation node

This may not be directly RPG related, but there is an RPG connection and this is something I think gamers will like to know about.
I was over at Cthulhu.com and saw that they were asking for readers to vote for Cthulhu as the name of NASA's next space station node. So naturally I wanted to see what this was all about and followed the link to NASA's site.
After voting, yes I voted for Cthulhu because I think that would be absolutely hilarious, I decided to check out the top names at this point and almost kicked myself when I found out what was number 1... Serenity with 78% of the vote!
I can't believe that I didn't think to write in Serenity, Millenium Falcon, Star Destroyer, Galactica or some other name that would have made geeky, sci-fi sense. So while I still think having a part of the space station named Cthulhu would be some funny shit, I have to admit I like the idea that it could be named Serenity. Knowing that up there, in the black, Serenity was flying high would be pretty damn cool. Plus with the other nodes being named Unity and Harmony, Serenity just makes sense.
So I am asking every reader and RPG blogger to go to the site and either vote for Cthulhu or Serenity.
