The International Space Station is growing, and NASA's Node 2 is the next U.S. pressurized module scheduled for installation on the orbiting laboratory. The node will provide more room for station crews to live and work, but it needs a name.
Students in kindergarten through grade 12 attending U.S. schools and children of American personnel overseas are being asked to help NASA name the module and become part of the history of the station. The module is at NASA's Kennedy Space Centre, and is targeted for launch in late 2007. The node will be a connecting port and passageway to additional international science labs and space supply vehicles. It also will be a work platform for the station's robotic arm.

(Ed - it would be funny if everyone suggested New module)

FredAll of us grads of Potrzebie High School know how to pronounce it, especially those of us who were in the marching band. After all, we shouted a cheer when we finished playing our Alma Mader, "Here's to Old Potrzebie!" What other high school had such a stirring slogan as "We Serve the Needy!"

BTW, that's where I learned the Potrzebie System of Weights and Measures, a system which has remained untouched to this day.

And for very good reason!
