The SETI Institute has opened up public voting to help name Pluto's two smallest moons. Thus far, they have been known simply as P4 and P5. The winners will be announced on Monday February 25, 2013. Currently, there have been nearly 40,000 responses and Vulcan is in the lead!
This is due largely to the efforts of William Shatner and others on Twitter who have been encouraging followers to vote for the most famous Star Trek planet. Though I personally feel Vulcan deserves to be more than a tiny moon it's wonderful that Trekkies are engaged in this process.
