Topics: naming things, Pluto, Charon, Planetary Radio, Pluto's small moons

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).
