NASA has confirmed the discovery of a real-universe analogue of Gallifrey, the home planet of the Time Lords in Doctor Who.
According to a recent article, NASA came across what it calls a “transiting circumbinary multi-planet system” – in layman’s speak, “two worlds orbiting two suns” – using its Kepler planet-hunting telescope, and the Register likens to “Doctor Who’s Time Lord homeworld, Gallifrey.”
The new system, which has been named Kepler 47, has two stars circling each other every 7.5 days. One of them is similar in size to our sun, whereas the other is approximately one third its size.
Doctor Who fans have started a petition to rename the newly discovered planet, named “HD 106906 b” to Gallifrey in honour of the show.
Just pointing this out for anyone unaware: the BBC video player’s volume control goes from 1 to 11.

"Blimey! 78,327 of you? I suppose you could all fit in the TARDIS. Well, she is bigger on the inside. I’ll tell you what, pack your things and your best running shoes because let’s be honest - you’re going to need them. I’ll be in your backyard in five minutes to pick you up in the TARDIS. See you then.”
