    Seems to be a fair bit of 'captive attraction' going on in the outer solar system.

    Neptune captured Triton.

    Most or all of Pluto's moons appear to be captures of one sort or another, given orbital instabilities.

    And now this.

    It may be of interest to note that the New Horizons probe's next target may possibly be a contact binary.

    It's what you would expect in a lower temperature region of the SS to a place like the asteroid belt where aggregation was interrupted.

    Yes it is going to be very interesting to see what we get from new Horizon's when it arrives. At any rate that will be a very quick encounter.
