Help name two of Pluto’s five moons!

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

    They put in one good name, Hypnos and forgot his twin brother Thánatos.

    One the god of sleep and the other the god of peaceful death.

    Sons of Nyx. Who is already one of the moons.

    I wrote them about their mistake.

    I’m jealous that tiny Pluto – not even a PLANET any more – has 5 moons, but Earth has only ONE ! ! What gives??

  • Pzatchok

    But we have one really big one.

    I do believe we have the largest moon compared to its primary in the solar system.

    We are almost a binary.
