Saw this @ Twitter about an hour ago:

Could Pluto's moon Charon have moons? Orbital calculations reveal a stable zone around Charon, so it's possible. Stay tuned for 2015.

Wouldn't that be something! ^_^

Certainly it is worth investigating. It's odd to think that a small body could orbit Charon without being disturbed by Pluto or the other small moons. How much longer do we have to wait? :D

The answer may soon be on the Horizon. ;)
