The Pluto/Charon system and its moons!
Most inner moons in the solar system keep one face pointed toward their central planet; this animation shows that certainly isn't the case with the small moons of Pluto, which behave like spinning tops. Pluto is shown at center with, in order, from smaller to wider orbit: Charon, Styx, Nix, Kerberos, Hydra.

Pause, and remember
Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada, and in many other countries around the world.
Every year on November 11, Canadians pause to remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace. We honour those who fought for Canada in the First World War (1914-1918), the Second World War (1939-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953), as well as all those who have served since then.
Each year, millions of Canadians wear poppies as a symbol that they will never forget, and to honour those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. You can read more about the poppy and its significance to remembering the war dead here.
