Breaking News - Astronomers discovery Gallifrey!

http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/331857

NASA has confirmed the existence of a real-universe analogue of Gallifrey, the fictional Time Lord planet that features in the BBC science-fiction drama series, Doctor Who.
According to an article in the Register, 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 [of] Gallifrey – or alternatively the luxury-planet-builders’ planet Magrathea [from] The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy”!

The fictional Time Lord planet of Gallifrey resides in a binary star system within the constellation of Kasterborous. Although Doctor Who began in 1963, the name of the Doctor’s home planet was not revealed until his second regeneration in the ten-part story The War Games (1969).
To the ships!

Too late, they've already time-locked it.

The name of the Doctor's home planet wasn't revealed until The Time Warrior. Come on, do the research...

Does it matter that it was found since it is time-locked we won't be able to go there right?
