Help name geological features of Pluto

Help us put names on the maps of Pluto and Charon!

You can vote for pre-selected names on the ballot, or submit your own. New Horizons is still a couple months away from being able to see the surface of Pluto with any kind of granularity, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start picking out names.

The ballot closes on 7 April. I was going to suggest Disney characters, but that would be a clear trademark and licensing issue, so I opted for underworld names, mostly J.R.R. Tolkien names with some Greek mythology names thrown in.
