Wheatley is about to have a real life adventure "In spaaaaaaace!"
It appears someone over at NASA is a Portal fan, as the image of Aprature’s sarcastically evil (yet loveable) space core Wheatley has been engraved onto a very valuable piece of equipment, which will be blasting off into space this coming Friday.
The anonymous tech used some kind of laser tool (I’m not an engineer so I don’t know the technical term) to permanently graffito tag Wheatley and his memorable "In spaaaaaaace!" quote onto a special panel destined to be used on the International Space Station.
Once the folks over at Valve got a hold of this news, they couldn’t help but give this hilariously awesome response on the official Portal site:
Whoever is responsible for this is an awesome human being and deserves all of the cake!
True but remember, no one can hear you voice act IIINNNNNN SPAACCEEEE!!
Is in a mission to find lunar rock conductor to construct a dimensional portal device.
That's easy, he will just voice act them IIIINNNNNN SPAACCCCCEEEEEE.
Sweet. Even NASA knows Portal 2 is awesome.
Yes, there is a god out there.
YOU SAID IT"S WHEATLEY DO SOME REASEARCH BEFORE USING CAPS LOC! No one is saying they aren't using a picture of him. But if you played the game you'd know it's not Wheatley who says the line. It's a corrupted core that also goes into space.
Portal 2 and NASA. What could be better? ^^
This is really cool, i love it when companies give shout outs to video game franchises.
Didn't Valve use a picture of Earth from NASA's archive for Portal 2? I distinctly remember NASA getting a special thanks for that in P2's credits
Whatever the case, this is a brilliant tip of the hat
There might be Weatley on the picture but it's NOT he who says: "In spaaaaace".
but if nolan north is in space how will he voice all 40 characters he is doing about now?
Quick, somebody should Photoshop an image with all the personality cores, with a caption "Wheatley" on each and everyone, except on the personality core that actually IS Wheatley.
EVERYONE WHO SAID IT'S THE SPACE CORE PLEASE ACTUALLY CLICK THE LINK TO THE OFFICIAL PORTAL WEBSITE! The title there says "Wheatley in Spaaaaaaace!" Thus it's Wheatley and NOT the Space Core.
Also, I quote from the official Portal website: "Though mankind will surely regret giving Wheatley a celestial perch to plot his next move..." When Valve says so there is no argument.
tl;dr CAPS LOCK FOR THE WIN!
I'm with CoatHanger, its Space Core.
That's cool and all, but I would rather see a "nice pair" engraved on it. I'd rather see a set of those in zero g than the space core.
Um...I think you just mean Space Core, not Wheatley.
It is Wheatley, or it says it is on the Portal 2 Website, and you can tell by the eye, seeing as it doesnt have any Pupil in the cores eye , its just one color
Yeah, I assume Ryan never played Portal 2 :P
