However, unfortunately for us Doctor Who fans, the likelihood that a civilization of time lords lives there is slim-to-none. The newly discovered HD 106906 B is 11 times larger than Jupiter, and sits farther out from it's parent start than any planet we have yet to observe. Somewhere around 650 Astronomical Units (the average distance from the Earth to the Sun.)
Still there's always hope.

Peering into the far reaches of the solar system, astronomers have spied a pink frozen world 7½ billion miles from the sun.

It's the second such object to be discovered in a region of space beyond Pluto long considered a celestial wasteland. Until now, the lone known resident in this part of the solar system was an oddball dwarf planet spotted in 2003 named Sedna after the mythological Inuit goddess who created the sea creatures of the Arctic.
