In what might be the most unusual public service announcement for NASA, comedian Stephen Colbert uses his unique sense of humor to spread the word about the great things NASA is doing, especially on the International Space Station. But then, he WOULD support the ISS since NASA named an ISS treadmill after him when his name received the most entries in a contest to name Node 3.
