Image Pluto and Charon
two further moons around Pluto have since been discovered

New Horizons is a NASA mission to PLUTO which passed Jupiter 2 years ago. ETA at PLUTO is 2015!

Pluto and it's 3 moons are so far out at the edge of the solar system that they receive very little warmth from the Sun

temperatures of just 30° above absolute zero (-300°) are common

it's monumentally cold

the prospect of ever having a brew on them there moons is literally a million to one

one moon is massive - being half the size of Pluto itself, the other 2 moons are tiny in comparison

what the heck is this probe going to discover in 2015? sod all I bet :hmmm:

Image
Pluto and Charon to scale with each other and the United States; the new satellites, S/2005 P 1 and S/2005 P 2 are about half as large as the letter that spells "P" in "Pluto." As Charon orbits Pluto, it is actually about 19,400 kilometers (about 12,000 miles) away.

that is how big they are

the other 2 moons are about half as large as the letter that spells "P" in "Pluto."

still love to go there though :blotto:
