    Default Gallifrey Falls No More?

    Hey guys. If you don't know (and probably don't...) the University of Arizona discovered a new planet; HD 106906. Astronomers have discovered a planet the existence of which flies in the face of all theories about how planets are formed.This young planet shouldn't even exist, it's that strange. HD 106906 is eleven times Jupiter's mass, which is two and half times the mass of all our other planets. It orbits its star 650 times the average Earth-Sun distance! At only 11 million years old, this planet is still glowing from the residual heat of it's formation. Compared to Earth's age, 4.5 billion years old, Earth is 350 times older.

    In Doctor Who, there is a planet named Gallifrey where the Time Lords live. In the show, Gallifrey is located in a binary star system within the constellation Kasterborous, some 250 million light years away. HD 106906 is thought to be created like a binary star, yet it is much denser. It is so similar to planet Gallifrey, Whovians made a petition to rename the planet Gallifrey in honor of the show.

    "I really want this planet to be named Gallifrey. Even if it just an honorary name, or a officially recognised as "also known as Gallifrey" there really needs to be a Gallifrey out there in the universe. Doctor Who is legendary, award winning, record breaking, and global, and this planet deserves something special and supernatural as its name, How better to honor its existence than by dubbing it the home planet of our beloved time travelling alien, The Doctor? Years from now, when I have grandchildren, and I tell them about my favorite show growing up, I want to tell them that we found the planet that The Doctor was from. Do it for the fandom! Please share! and get everyone to sign this petition!"

    I'm not even a fan of the doctor but I do enjoy real life references to things from the sci fi culture so I am definitely in support.

    Thanks Egg. I also thought it was very cool, and I have watched Doctor Who since I was out of the womb, it adds another reason why I want this planet to be named Gallifrey.

    Maybe they'll find a frozen picture in time! [No More was written on the board in the beginning of Day of the Doctor!]

    Yeah, but we can try anyway. I thought it was really cool. It's not my idea, I belong to many DW fanpages and they getting their panties in a twist about this.
