    It appears the nomenclature has been set at last for Pluto and environs. Good luck, young Skywalker.

    As cool as the fictional names are, I'm more excited that a lot of my historical faves are also getting features in the Pluto system named for them, like Hillary, Norgay, Piccard, Wright and Baré Montes, Cousteau Rupes, and Challenger Colles.
