NASA: Hubble Telescope Reveals Pluto has Fifth Moon

On July 11, 2012, astronomers announced that a fifth moon had been discovered orbiting the dwarf planet. Researchers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope found the moon. The discovery comes almost exactly one year after Hubble spotted Pluto's fourth moon, a tiny body currently called P4.
