Fans of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart know that he ends almost every telecast with a Moment of Zen. The other night, the host welcomed another popular Stewart -- Star Trek: The Next Generation's iconic Captain Picard, Patrick Stewart -- to help bid adieu to China's doomed moon rover, Jade Rabbit, which was launched in December but experienced a technical malfunction almost immediately after landing on the moon's surface. It's now in hibernation mode and may stay that way... permanently.

Stewart suited up in a delightfully cheesy combination of cardboard and tin foil to "play" Jade Rabbit, and he sang a quick ditty to say goodbye to the world. Seems to us that Jade Rabbit is going out in style.
