Astronomers recently discovered two previously unknown moons orbiting Pluto, bringing its total up to five. How this supposed non-planet can have so many moons is beyond me, but whatever. Anyway, the new moons have been dubbed P4 and P5 — an oversight that needs correcting, especially when considering the elegant names of Pluto's other moons Charon, Nix, and Hydra. Thankfully, a group of astronomers has shortlisted a set of names it's hoping to submit to the the International Astronomical Union (IAU) for consideration. And best of all, you can vote for your favorites.
