Name Pluto’s New Moon After Neil Gaiman

The trusty Hubble space telescope has recently discovered a fourth moon orbiting the Kuiper Belt Object known as Pluto. Famously once a planet, Pluto still triumphantly occupies the icy outer-rim of our solar system and up until recently was thought to have three satellites: Hydra, Charon, and Nix. The Hubble has now detected P4 (or designation 2011 (134340) 1 if you want to get sexy about it), making the Pluto family a little bit larger. Astronomers think P4 is roughly 8 to 21 miles long.

Tor Publishing is wanting to get the new moon named after Neil Gaiman, I for one think that Gaiman would be a great name for a moon.
