Garriott to Shoot Colbert's DNA into Space

BOOM widget 119285 Operation Immortality has recruited its newest space cadet: Stephen Colbert.

Game designer Richard Garriott's newest publicity stunt, the Operation Immortality project will see the DNA of Tabula Rasa players and others entombed within a time capsule aboard the International Space Station.

"I am thrilled to have my DNA shot into space, as this brings me one step closer to my lifelong dream of being the baby at the end of 2001," said Colbert.

"In the unlikely event that Earth and humanity are destroyed, mankind can be resurrected with Stephen Colbert's DNA," added Garriott. "Is there a better person for us to turn to for this high-level responsibility?"
