Yes! Axe-wielding glam rock astronomy PhD hero Brian May has written a new popular science book on space, time, and the history of the universe, and more than that, he has recorded a soaring multi-tracked guitar solo promo for it with Patrick Moore on drums. Epic genius, play loud:
If you’ve rocked out to “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Another One Bites The Dust-ah” you may also enjoy Brian’s solo work, including “MGI Emission in Night-Sky Spectrum” (Nature 240) and “Investigation of Motion of Zodiacal Dust Particles” (Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society 166). Are there more rock-god post-grad scientists I have been missing out on? Galileo (Galileo) Galileo (Galileo) Galileo (Figaro Magnifico-o-o-o-o) was a talented musician too (honestly).
