Chance for the public to name features on Pluto and Charon!

  1. Apr 11, 2015 #1
    There is a public campaign to submit names for the features on Pluto and Charon. This opportunity ends on April 24, 2015. I have already nominated Leonard Nimoy since Pluto is the god of the underworld and Charon carries the souls of the newly deceased across the river Styx to the afterlife I think it is fitting.

    I fixed the link.
    I don't find a category where Nimoy would fit in. Spock is there (fictional travelers).

    I put it under Authors and artists, it hasn't appeared on the list yet.

    There is an asteroid, and there were two other naming suggestions, see Persephone (disambiguation).
