Help Name Pluto's Moons!

It's true--you can help name Pluto's recently-discovered-and-as-of-now-charmlessly-designated moons. The SETI Institute is ready to progress from calling them P4 and P5, and asks you to vote on names with more personality, including Persephone, Cerberus, and Sisyphus. Pluto's moons are traditionally named after Greek and Roman myths, so if you have a suggestion using that guideline, you can even write in a name on your ballot.

You can vote once a day, and voting ends February 25th, so get going!
