Dear Solar System, meet a new moon called Vulcan #

Though it was the only one of the Greek/Roman names not directly associated with the mythology regarding the underworld, “Vulcan” won by a landslide in the Pluto Rocks poll to name the two new moons discovered orbiting Pluto… 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.

I await the debate between Star Trek fans and Doctor Who fans about which Vulcan this Vulcan has been named after.
