    Or, perhaps, spaaaaaace. The Portal 2 blog has been updated with an interesting little story. An anonymous tech at NASA has laser-engraved a picture of Wheatley onto a panel that is going to be on a Japanese resupply craft heading to the international space station. Valve are keen to remind everyone though that NASA for some insane reason do not officially endorse the Portal franchise or engraving personality cores onto equipment. Perhaps this policy can be changed in the near future. Anyway, enjoy the photograph:

    Did someone specifically say that is Wheatley or are we all just guessing. Because maybe it is the other personality core, specifically the "spaaaaaaace" core...? It is not like the part in the picture says "This is wheatley." And the only core that I associate with the whole "In spaaaaaaace" thing is the "spaaaaaaace" core. Does that make sense?

    I was thinking the same thing DawnTreader but Valve said it was Wheatley in their blog post so I went with that.

    Did the other cores have Wheatley's expression-bar things?

    There are videos on YouTube and as far as I can tell the only difference between Wheatley and the space core is the color of thier eye.
