Portal 2's Space Personality Core heading into space
Posted: 22.07.2012 16:19 by Comments: 3
At least one NASA engineering tech is a Portal 2 fan, as one of the panels of the resupply craft had the Space Personalaity Core laser-engraved into it, excited about going into "SPAAAAAAAAAAAACE!"


Keep in mind, NASA isn't pleased. According to Valve, "NASA in no way officially endorses secretly laser-engraving characters from Portal onto their spacecraft."

Regardless, Valve has to be secretly pleased that their game has gone so viral as to affect the United States space program. Is it any different than naming the first space shuttle "The Enterprise" due to pressure from fans?

Lol, this is great :)

But it's slightly different to the Enterprise deal, there we had a big number of people supporting the name and NASA agreed to it as an organization, here we have more of a lone wolf acting on his/her own.
