How cool is this? Pluto's newest moon is named Vulcan

Pluto's newest moon is named Vulcan with just a "bit" of help from Trek fans...

***'Thank you to all who voted!' Shatner said in a tweet once the tally was complete.

***Actor Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed Spock, joked: 'If my people were emotional they would say they are pleased.'

And hey, my 2nd choice, Cerberus, won as well.
