Astrophysics Rocks!

Sorry marine biologists, but it looks like you're not the only rock stars in the science community.

The field of astrophysics is about to usher in their very own MEGA rock star - Brian May, formerly of Queen. Apparently the 60-year old rocker has just about wrapped up his doctoral dissertation on "Radial Velocities in the Zodiacal Dust Cloud".

How many PhDs do you know of that are also world-wide musical icons? Really, who would of thought that "Fat Bottomed Girls" would be written by a physicist?

(Thanks for the link, Linda)

No doubt he was studying angular motion in the solar system when he discovered that fat bottomed girls make the rocking world go round.
