Stephen Colbert is sending his DNA into space as part of video game designer Richard Garriott's Operation Immortality. Colbert's DNA will be digitized and archived on the International Space Station as an off-site backup of humanity -- who better to resurrect humankind than Colbert, says Garriott in a statement. He will be bringing Colbert's DNA, along with that of Digg creator Kevin Rose, gold medalist Scott Johnson, American Gladiator Matt Morgan, and others, to the ISS in October as part of his space-tourism trip. "I am thrilled to have my DNA shot into space, as this brings me one step closer to my life-long dream of being the baby at the end of 2001," says Colbert in a press release.
