Space aliens everywhere are in for a laugh. Comedian Stephen Colbert's DNA is going to be digitized and sent to the International Space Station for an "Immortality Drive" helmed by video game designer Richard Garriott, who's creating a time capsule of human DNA, filled with humanity's biggest achievements and personal messages. "In the unlikely event that Earth and humanity are destroyed, mankind can be resurrected with Stephen Colbert's DNA," Richard said in a statement. "Is there a better person for us to turn to for this high-level responsibility?" As for the host of the The Colbert Report, he took the huge responsibility in stride. "I am thrilled to have my DNA shot into space," he said, "as this brings me one step closer to my lifelong dream of being the baby at the end of 2001 [the seminal sci-fi film]."
