Help NASA Name Node 3!

March 4, 2009

Neat contest underway on the NASA website:

NASA wants your opinion in naming the International Space Station’s Node 3 – a connecting module and its cupola – before the two segments travel to space and are installed on the orbiting laboratory. The name should reflect the spirit of exploration and cooperation embodied by the space station, and follow in the tradition set by Node 1- Unity– and Node 2- Harmony.
 
Space shuttle Endeavour will deliver the Node 3 components during the STS-130 mission targeted for December 2009.”
