Answer: D, Stephen Colbert

"...a treadmill engineers had called simply T-2 for more than two years is suddenly famous as the Combined Operational Load-Bearing External Resistance Treadmill, or COLBERT. NASA selected the treadmill's name after comedian and host Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central's 'The Colbert Report' took interest during the Node 3 naming census and urged his followers to post the name 'Colbert,' which received the most entries."
