Doctor Who's fictional Planet 'Gallifrey' found?



NASA has confirmed the existence of a real universe analogue of Gallifrey, which we all know is the fictional Time Lord planet.

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.
