My Favorite Photos With a Sci-Fi Theme: #9

#9. Pluto and Charon and Hydra and Nix, oh my!

A glimpse of the farthest known planets in our solar system, Pluto and Charon, though Pluto's identity as a planet or planetoid is under debate. The two smaller dots are Pluto's recently discovered moons, named Hydra and Nix. Now I ask you, if Pluto has two moons of its own, shouldn't it be granted recognition as a full-blown planet?
