Life and Giant Planets
These Hubble Space Telescope images, taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys, reveal Pluto, its large moon Charon, and the planet's two new
putative satellites. In the short-exposure image [left], taken June 11,
2002, the candidate moons cannot be seen. They do, however, appear in the middle and right-hand images where longer exposure times were used. Credit: NASA, ESA, H. Weaver (JHU/APL), A. Stern (SwRI), and the Hubble Space Telescope Pluto Companion Search Team
