Speaking of Pluto...

I just posted today's installment of Planetary Radio, in which Mat Kaplan gets an update on New Horizons from Principal Investigator Alan Stern—check it out!

I've received quite a lot of emails with thoughtful suggestions of names for Pluto's moons—thanks! I think I will keep gathering them until I get to work tomorrow morning, then I'll wrap them up and send them on to Alan (I'll post them here too).

We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?

Consider a gift to our Space Policy and Advocacy program to fuel more missions, more science, and more exploration.
