Is it too much to say that the member of the founder of the Queen, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, and the new version of the certificate of astrophysicist Brian May has a tone of the star?
OK, however, we are not talking about exploring the stars, but NASA's New Horizons probe flying higher than Freddie Mercury's falset, has just taken a revelation of the farthest object we've ever explored in our Solar System: Ultima Thule, some 6.5 billions of miles there in the Kuiper Belt.
To celebrate this stellar achievement, May released its official music video for the "Ultima Thule Mix", which gives a whole new meaning to the interplanetary rock. The video literally travels from launch into the depths of space in an effort to celebrate the 12-year journey of far-reaching probes, as "Bryan's personal respect for NASA's current mission," New Horizons, "according to the official Queen's description of the channel.
Of course, such a melody tune coming from May should come as a surprise, because he is the only songwriter of perhaps the largest space space opera, "Flash" of Flash Gordon soundtrack. And while this new song may not save each one of us, it's still pretty damn epic, especially when it's set against the visual images in the video.
But before "Flash" was even a flash in the eyes of May, as early as 1974, the musician studied light reflecting the dust of the solar system as a candidate for astrophysics at Royal College London. After being asked to put it out to be one of the greatest bands in the history of the world, May returned to school and completed a bachelor's degree in 2007.
And May must be pretty good in all astrophysics, since in 2015 a member of the founder of the queen (who was actually the king of the queen) was named as a research fellow at the Nova Horizons team when she studied Pluto. According to Smithsonian, "In addition to cutting through some images and information collected by New Horizons, May compiled the first high-quality stereo image of Pluto."
More and more reasons to promote "New Horizons (Ultima Thule Mix)" on their own high-quality stereo, do not you think?
