  1. Dunno if you guys heard (cuz I don't think anybody's mentioned it), but NASA's New Horizons mission has revealed a lot of new geographical features on Pluto and it's moons, and people have started naming them.

    Here's a picture of Charon. I'll let it do the talking.
  2. Oh my god. It's full of Star Trek.
    • Nice execution! Nice execution! x 1
  3. That dark smudge to the right of Nemo Crater.

    That's the Asmorifice.

    No touchie.

  4. If these are going to be the official names then I am extremely happy with this. :3
  5. I think it's turbo tacky.
    • Like Like x 1
  6. That's why I love it. :3
  7. An article I read said they're currently provisional names, but since Titan (one of Saturn's moons) already has features named adter Frodo and Bilbo on it, there's a good chance they'll get accepted.

  8. We need something named for HAL. one Kubrick reference isn't enough.
  9. The moon has become a little bit more nerdy. I approve of this.
