Along with the DNA of other bright minds, musicians, and athletes, clever funnyman Stephen Colbert’s digitized DNA will also be included in Operation Immortality’s digital time capsule that’s being delivered to the International Space Station next month. See video above for his DNA sign-off from February 2006.
