Stephen Colbert Visits NASA Looking For A Job

Stephen Colbert, in an effort to get a second job should this whole Colbert Report thing falls through, visited NASA a while back to try out as an astronaut.

The results have been airing this week.

Things we learn: NASA employees don't generally seem to be in on the whole Colbert shtick, or are amazingly good at pretending they aren't; specific NASA employees aren't familiar with the S&M term "safe word" or the idea of a "strap-on"; and astronaut interviews don't go too well if the applicant admits to "a fear of tubes and wiring" and being "not good with heights."

The two segments aired so far, after the jump:

The Colbert Report Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c
Fallback Position - Astronaut Pt. 2
