Pluto's largest moon just got a bunch of nerdy names for its craters, mountains

Space nerds and science fiction fans, rejoice! Some of the craters, mountains, and other features of Pluto's largest moon Charon just got official names, and they're nerdy as hell. 

From a mountain named after Stanley Kubrick to a crater named for Captain Nemo, many of Charon's features have now been named for the "literature and mythology of exploration," according to the International Astronomical Union (IAU), the organization responsible for assigning such monikers.
