I know this is very off topic from what I usually write about but my 16 year old son Sam has set up a petition to name a newly discovered planet GALLIFREY which is the name of Doctor Who’s home planet.
Here is Sam’s reason for setting up the petition.
I really want this planet to be named Gallifrey. Even if it just an honorary name, or a nickname, there really needs to be a Gallifrey out there in the universe. Doctor Who is legendary, award winning, record breaking, and global, and this newly discovered 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 whovian to sign this petition!
LETS DO THIS! Please share this petition with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, Email etc! Anything to get the message spread out. Recruit as many people as you can! If you have a website put it on that too anything! Copy the link to this page and use the hashtag (#GallifreyFound) THANK YOU!
