Did you know that Pluto’s moons rotate in such a disorderly manner; this anomaly has baffled scientist?

According to scientist, Hydra, one of the moons, rotates so rapidly it spins every 10 hours therefore spinning a total of 89 times per orbit within its 38 day cycle. Showalter, from Nasa, stated “if Hydra were spinning much faster, material would fly off its surface due to the centrifugal force.”
