Your Chance to Name the Moons of Pluto

Quote:
Pluto Moons Naming Contest Announced By Astronomers

By MARCIA DUNN 02/11/13 05:05 PM ET EST AP

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Want to name Pluto's two tiniest moons? Then you'll need to dig deep into mythology.

Astronomers announced a contest Monday to name the two itty-bitty moons of Pluto discovered over the past two years.

Pluto is the Roman equivalent of the Greek's Hades, lord of the underworld, and its three bigger moons have related mythological names: Charon, the ferryman of Hades; Nix for the night goddess; and the multi-headed monster Hydra.

The two unnamed moons – no more than 15 to 20 miles across – need similarly shady references. Right now, they go by the bland titles of P4 and P5.

Online voting will last two weeks, ending Feb. 25. Twelve choices are available at the website . http://www.plutorocks.com

Plussers! I need your help. On the other social media platforms I am on I asked that fans write in to get the name of one of Pluto's moons Vulcan (Romulus was already the name of a moon.) It apparently made a difference as they now have added it as an official name. Isn't that wonderful.

However, we now need votes, as Pluto was put put up today and we are in last place. Would you please consider voting?

I voted. Hypnos, Lethe, and Obol.

Hypnos and Lethe were obvious choices for me

I suppose HAL 9000 wouldn't be considered?

In keeping with the previous theme I would suggest Cerberus as one of the names.
