International Space Station Gets Extreme Makeover

The space shuttle Discovery's mission took a commercial turn on Tuesday as Ty Pennington, host of ABC's "Extreme Makeover," emerged from the spacecraft to reveal plans for the remodeled International Space Station.
Crews that had been hidden aboard the ship with Pennington immediately got to work building a new cedar-wood sundeck on the station's starboard exterior, along with a refurbished eat-in kitchen and a workout room complete with sauna and jacuzzi. Pennington admitted that NASA scientists were still ironing out plans for the jacuzzi to function in zero gravity without flooding the station with floading clouds of water.
NASA administrator Michael Griffin said this phase of the mission would be a "win-win for everyone involved," providing great publicity for both the ABC reality show and NASA and would help recoup some of the cost of the ridiculously expensive, and increasingly pointless, shuttle program.
