Want To Name Pluto's Moons?

Pluto has a few moons that need names, and the public's input is being requested. Visit plutorocks.com[1] to vote.

They have a pre-selected list to choose from, following the tradition of pulling from the mythology of Ancient Greece. But they're also allowing write-in votes. I think the Internet would missing a opportunity if we didn't have a campaign to write-in the name Tyson[[2][3][4].

Too bad we'll probably end up getting them named after cats[5].
