A while back, we told you how SETI was turning to the public to name Pluto’s two smallest moons, now named P4 and P5.

Terminally ill Star Trek fan dies a few days after watching a private screening of the new Star Trek movie
With the power of the internet behind him, a friend of Daniel Craft, a huge Star Trek fan and co-founder of the New York Asian Film Festival managed to make Craft’s dying wish of seeing JJ Abrams’ next Trek film before its release a reality. Craft was quickly dying of liver cancer, and Redditors pulled together to make the dream a reality. Daniel Craft was granted his wish and received a private screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness. Several days later, Craft passed from this mortal coil. Damn it’s dusty in here.
