Be Part of History – Help NASA Name the Next Space Station Module
Eight refrigerator-sized racks in the Node 3 module will provide room for many of the station’s life support systems. Attached to the node is the cupola, a one-of-a-kind work station with six windows around the sides and one on top. The cupola will offer astronauts a spectacular view of their home planet and their home in space. In addition to providing a perfect location to observe and photograph Earth, the cupola also will contain a robotics workstation from which astronauts will be able to control the station’s 57-foot robotic arm.
Individuals can vote for the module’s name online, choosing one of four NASA suggestions — Earthrise, Legacy, Serenity or Venture — or writing in a name. Submissions will be accepted
The winning name will be announced at the Node 3 unveiling
