Ok everybody agrees that rock n' roll is pretty cool, not everyone agree that astrophysics is cool but now I think we have the irrefutable proof that it is in fact. Apparently a rock star will be finishing is phd in Astrophysics (after a small wait of 30 years!). Yep, guitarist Brian May is a former phd student in astrophysics and not only that he will be getting data from the Canaries Island. Well he will not be using the WHT like I was he will apparently be using the slightly smaller Galileo telescope (a 3.6 m telescope) and he isn't studying something that I know about (Zodiacal dust cloud). So if astrophysics is good enough for a one of Queen's member it must be pretty cool no? Ok you might say it is not but try to name another science which ever had a true rock star phd (not an honorary one).
Rock On Astrophysics!
