Pluto's 4th Moon Discovered

Scientists Spot Pluto's Fourth Moon

I can't even begin to comprehend how valuable the Hubble Space Telescope has been to humanity over the years. The amazing discoveries and jaw dropping images of the cosmos have been blowing us away for years now and this is just another of those amazing discoveries. Pluto has a fourth moon, which is pretty impressive for a dwarf planet. This goes to show how much we don't know yet about even our own solar system. NASA's New Horizons Probe will be rendezvousing with the plutonian system in 2015 and we will get a much clearer picture of all the players involved. Cool discovery.
