Contest Seeks Underworldly Names For 2 Pluto Moons

Pluto’s two tiniest moons need a name and you can help, but you’ll need to dig deep into mythology.


These maps of Earth's moon highlight the region where the twin spacecraft of NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission will impact on Dec. 17, marking the end of its successful endeavor to map the moon's gravity. The two washing-machine-sized spacecraft, named Ebb and Flow, will impact at an unnamed mountain near the moon's North Pole. (Source: NASA.Gov)

NASA Probes Prepare For Mission-Ending Moon Impact

Ebb and Flow chased each other around the moon for nearly a year, peering into the interior. With dwindling fuel supplies, the twin NASA spacecraft are ready for a dramatic finish.

2nd Delay For NASA’s Launch Of Twin Moon Spacecraft

It’s another delay for NASA’s latest moonshot. That’s because a pair of spacecraft intended to orbit the moon and measure its gravity will not lift off until Saturday.
