NASA finally figured out what to do about the Space Station node-naming fiasco that mdr wrote about.

Apollo 11 landed on the moon at the Sea of Tranquility 40 years ago this July. We selected 'Tranquility' because it ties it to exploration and the moon, and symbolizes the spirit of international cooperation embodied by the space station. - Bill Gerstenmaier, associate administrator for Space Operations

I'm a photographer at the SSPF (Space Station Processing Facility) and have a shot of the COLBERT sticker "installed" / attached to the inside of the MPLM. I'm surprised there isn't a picture already on his site!

Space Shuttle Discovery has docked with the ISS with the C.O.L.B.E.R.T. in tow. I dug around the NASA website a bit, but I couldn't find out when the new treadmill will be installed.
