The campaign by fans to name one of Pluto’s two moons Vulcan has succeeded. The name won by a landslide with 174,062 votes.
Second place went to “Cerberus”
The Pluto Rocks web site handled the voting for the two recently discovered Plutonian moons.
Pluto Rocks, which is associated with the SETI Institute, is quick to point out on its website that the official final naming selections still need to be made and it might be 1-2 months before moons P4 and p5 become forever known as Vulcan and Cerberus.
