The discovery of Pluto's small moons in the last decade brought attention to the dynamics of the dwarf planet's satellites. Recent work has considered resonant interactions in the orbits of Pluto's small moons, with the Pluto-Charon system apparently inducing rotational chaos in non-spherical moons without the need of resonance. However, New Horizons observations suggest that despinning due to tidal dissipation has not taken place. Still, a tidally evolving Styx does appear to exhibit… Expand
