NASA Discovers New Moon Around Pluto

"The Hubble space telescope has found a fourth moon orbiting the icy dwarf planet of Pluto, NASA announced last week.

The space telescope was searching for rings around the planetary oddball at the edge of our solar system when it came across P4, the temporary name for the newly discovered moon."

Wow, this is so cool! First they decided that Pluto is no longer a planet. But it's got four moons and an atmosphere. You tell 'em, little guy.
