PostSubject: Petition to name newly discovered planet as 'Gallifrey'!!   Tue Dec 10, 2013 3:44 pm

Last week, the University of Arizona published the discovery of a new planet orbiting the HD 106906 star in the Crux Constellation, and the planet is currently named as HD 106906 B. It's about 300 lightyears away from Earth, it's a gas giant and it's estimated to be about 11 times the size of Jupiter!



A fan in Australia has started a petition to get the International Astronomical Union to name it 'Gallifrey' as a means of tribute to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, and also because it'd be freaking awesome!

Please sign the petition! You can find it here: http://www.change.org/petitions/international-astronomical-union-to-rename-the-newly-discovered-planet-hd-106906-b-to-gallifrey-in-honour-of-doctor-who-and-its-50-years-gallifreyfound

cheers
