Recently a new planet was discovered, HD 106906 b.
That name doesn’t really roll off the tongue, so a bunch (and I mean a bunch) of people are petitioning to have it renamed after another recently discovered planet.
That’s right Gallifrey – the lost planet of the Time Lords (that’s a Doctor Who reference for all you non-Whovians)
Personally I think naming this planet (even if it’s only a nickname) Gallifrey would be the perfect tribute to Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary. Seriously, the timing could not be better.
Sam Menhennet has actually gone so far as to start a petition which you can sign if you support the initiative. Want more information? Check out the video below
