[Computational Complexity] NASA's Poll a Sham!!
- Recall that NASA held a poll to determine the name of the third node of the international space station. I blogged about the fact that Stephen Colbert campaigned to win and did! The name Serenity came in second place.
NASA had three choices
- Name it Colbert. Show the world democracy in action! (at least on unimportant things).
- Name it Serenity. Reiterate that the poll was more to take the pulse of the public, but they really do want something more in line with the first two nodes: Harmony and Unity.
- Use the 7th place winner Tranquility and offer some half-assed reason for it.
